Fayetteville Family Travels to Washington, D.C., for Climate "Play In"

WASHINGTON, D.C., -- One Fayetteville family went all the way to Washington, D.C. to share their environmental concerns with Arkansas representatives.

The family is part of the Arkansas chapter of Mom's Clean Air Force.

Luna Terry came to Capitol Hill with her parents and little sister to participate in a Play In demonstration on Thursday.

“I get to march for what my kids and grandkids won't have one day if we stop believing in climate change,” she said.

This is the fourth year Mom's Clean Air Force has come to Capitol Hill.

Members from 40 states are petitioning Congress to take the lead on climate change.

The family said they plan to meet with Senator John Boozman's, R-Arkansas, office soon.

The Play In takes place just a few weeks after President  Donald Trump pulled the U.S. out of the Paris Climate Accord.
