OTH Rises Again: Sunday, September 5
Join us for the second and final installation of On the Horizon in San Francisco. Seeking to inspire action to halt climate change, OTH is both a reminder of what we -- locally, nationally, and globally -- stand to lose and a gentle prod to acknowledge, cherish, and celebrate what we still have.
