On September 8, Rise for Climate, Jobs, and Justice.
The weekend before San Francisco’s Global Climate Action Summit, the Peoples Climate Movement will lead a national mobilization for climate, jobs, and justice. Our Elders Climate Action project is partnering with this effort. If you will be on the West Coast, join us in planning our involvement on Sat, Sept 8 with this mass mobilization, then stay for the week and come to our workshop: Elders in Right Relationship with Today's World, on Sat, Sept 15. We have been invited to march with the Women's Earth and Climate Action Network on Sept 8. Come with our CEN and Elders Standing banners and join the courageous Indigenous Environmental heroines who have been fighting on the frontlines of the injustice of climate change across the world.
September 8th will be a moving demonstration of the breadth and depth of the climate movement. Across the country, tens of thousands of people will show our power by hitting the streets, holding community forums, and educating voters about the issues – all to ensure that elected and private sector leaders make action on climate a priority.
From Seattle to Miami – and everywhere in-between – activists and non-activists alike will come together to demonstrate to the world that on this day, and every day, climate matters. Like the National Day of Action in 2015, September 8th is about more than just numbers; it’s about telling the story of climate, jobs, and justice; it’s about showing that to change everything, it takes everyone – including you; and it’s about committing to make climate action a part of the national dialogue in November, in the months that follow, and well into 2019 and 2020.
