In what she said was an unrehearsed speech, Field urged attendees of Fire Drill Fridays, Fonda’s name for the Washington protests, to get out of their comfort zones and embrace drastic change to protect the environment.

“I am a mother, I am a grandmother. The time is now. We cannot sit back in our comfort zones, on our couches, and wonder, ‘What can we do?’,” Field said in a speech shared by Fire Drill Fridays’ Twitter account.
