People’s Climate March

As you may know, on September 21st people from around the nation 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 on climate change.

A growing coalition of San Diego organizations and individuals want to make sure that our local leaders know that San Diegans are also watching, and we too demand climate action now. They are working to bring hundreds of San Diegans together for the People’s Climate March SD to support the marchers in New York and to demand immediate action on climate change here at home. We will call for solutions that work for people and the planet – a rapid transition from fossil fuels to renewables and energy efficiency, and a just and sustainable economy. We will press our elected leaders to implement a strong Climate Action Plan for San Diego; develop sustainable water policies; build affordable mass transit and facilitate healthy communities; and support green jobs and clean energy.
