Actress and Longtime Activist Jane Fonda to Release Book on Climate Action

The purpose of the climate change conversation has always transcended making someone at the dinner table uncomfortable; Jane Fonda knows this, and she has plenty to say about it.

A seasoned activist and no stranger to commanding the attention of a room (says her 50+year-old career on the big screen and her wildly famous exercise tapes), Jane Fonda penned What Can I Do?: My Path From Climate Despair to Action after being brought to her feet by organizers like Greta Thunberg, Naomi Klein, Jansikwe Medina-Tayac, and student climate strikers. In this thorough recount of her participation in green activism (including speeches by climate scientists and community leaders), Fonda gives her audience the tools to join the fight for environmental sustainability, in hopes that we may become successfully and knowledgeably involved.

Reminiscent of when she moved from her quiet farmhouse in France back to the American hotbed of Vietnam War protests and civil rights demonstrations back in1968, Fonda moved to Washington D.C. in the Fall of 2019 in order to lead weekly protests on Capitol Hill. These “Fire Drill Fridays” are nonviolent demonstrations where celebrities use their platforms to lobby for sustainable environmental legislation, and to empower climate change activists.



“Change is coming by design or by disaster. A green new deal that transitions off fossil fuels provides the design,” Fonda states on her Fire Drill Fridays website.

So far, Jane Fonda has been arrested five times during her weekly protests, once while accepting a BAFTA Britannia award. Among other Hollywoodites who have been arrested at these events are Fonda’s Grace & Frankie co-stars Lily Tomlin, Sam Waterson, and Martin Sheen, Steel Magnolias’ Sally Field, and The Good Place’s Ted Danson.
