Wildfires. Mudslides. Drought.
In California, we’ve seen the terror that insufficient action on climate change has wrought — like in the rest of the world, increased climate impacts at a higher pace and intensity. And, we’ve seen the visionary solutions we need to build a thriving, just, healthy planet.
In September, the eyes of the world turn here, to San Francisco and the Global Climate Action Summit, where local leaders from around the world will be called on to demonstrate their approaches to the rising crises. And we think this summit offers a unique opportunity for people all around the world to do the same — in towns, institutions, cities and states… If they walk the talk, we will walk with them. If not, we will push them to get moving.
It’s an opportunity we can’t afford to miss — and we need your help, here in California and all around the world.
We’re drawing upon the strengths of our movement: indigenous people, workers, youth, people of faith, communities of color, families and others to build a massive mobilization that demands what our communities and the planet really need — bold, immediate action towards a just transition away from the era of fossil fuels and false solutions and towards a renewable economy that protects our families, our workers, and our planet where everyone has enough to thrive. Will you join us?
We’re asking that you:
- Organize around the world on September 8th and demand your local leaders step up to what our communities truly need. You can register your event here.
- Join us in San Francisco on September 8th and the following days to put forth a vision of what real climate leadership is. Join us for an organizing meeting on May 22: FB event here, RSVP here
This critical moment calls for critical action. Will you join us?
