Jane Fonda is no stranger to making headlines and, this week, she virtually joined The Jess Cagle Show to discuss her most recent one.

Fonda — who pioneered Fire Drill Friday protests (inspired by a quote from activist Greta Thunberg) on Capitol Hill to take direct action against climate change — has ignited a strong desire among hundreds of thousands to mitigate the impacts of the current environmental crisis. As shelter-in-place and stay-at-home orders sweep the nation, Fonda and Greenpeace USA are moving Fire Drill Fridays to the next best place: online.

This shift from IRL to URL will consist of monthly virtual rallies and additional programming throughout the month on Fridays to continue to keep the pressure on politicians in support of a Green New Deal, ending new fossil fuels, and enacting a transition to a renewable economy that protects workers and communities. In the first iteration, which happened on April 3, Fonda was joined online by friends, activists, youth, Indigenous leaders, climate experts, and representatives from impacted and underrepresented communities.
