New York, NY

 

Our country is in crisis. The global climate crisis deepens at unprecedented speed. Rising sea levels, devastating storms and flooding, extreme wildfires, and food and water shortages are already causing mass migration, the destruction of island nations and the loss of life. We can no longer accept “business as usual” as the world hits the tipping points of climate change with no return. We must act now.

Days before the Global Climate Action Summit convenes in  San Francisco, people across the country and around the world will take to the streets demanding that our elected officials commit to the most far-reaching and effective policies possible.  

 

On Sept. 6th, we will call on Mayor de Blasio and Governor Cuomo to take concrete steps to enact the following:
 

A Just Transition to 100% Renewable Energy Now!

Stop All Fossil Fuel Infrastructure

Make Corporate Polluters Pay
 

Join us for a mass rally at Battery Park and a march up Broadway.  Help us let the world know that NYC is in the lead in the fight for Climate, Jobs and Justice. Let’s do it together!! 


Where to Meet Up

The Rally starts at 5:30pm in Battery Park. We will March out of the park at 6:30pm.
