Have you heard?! On September 21st people from around the nation and the world will come together in an unprecedented citizen mobilization for the People’s Climate March in New York City. As world leaders meet at the United Nations climate change summit, hundreds of thousands of marchers will demand the world we know is within our reach: a world with an economy that works for people and the planet; a world safe from the ravages of climate change; a world with good jobs, clean air and water, and healthy communities. Other marches will take place around the world as we collectively call on our leaders to act now on climate change.
Because it’s not just the UN that can and must act, San Diegans will also gather to send a loud and clear message to local leaders that we also demand immediate action on climate change here at home. We will call for solutions – a rapid transition from fossil fuels to renewables and energy efficiency, a strong Climate Action Plan, sustainable water policies, affordable, convenient mass transit, green jobs, clean renewable energy and healthy communities.
