Call to Action for September 9 —Rise Up for Climate, Jobs, Justice!

On the weekend of September 8-9, global grassroots organizations and the Peoples Climate Movement are planning thousands of rallies in cities and towns around the world to build awareness and support for the Global Climate Action Summit to be held in San Francisco on September 12-14. Delegates to the Summit will celebrate the best work being done at all levels and then ratchet up those efforts in order to achieve net decreases in yearly greenhouse gas emissions by 2020 and net zero emissions by 2050 or sooner.

In Connecticut, we will Rise Up for Climate, Jobs, and Justice at a rally and march in New Haven on Sunday, September 9 at 1:00 PM, to demand that our local leaders commit to building a 100% clean renewable energy world that puts people and justice before profits. Join us on the New Haven Green for speakers, musicians and a march around New Haven to highlight important aspects of the movement for a safer climate, a better economy and a just society
