Let’s march together in memory of our loved ones who have passed or are suffering from cancer, and dedicate ourselves to work for healthy, resilient communities & environmental justice.
PEOPLE’S EARTH DAY 2014
Environmental Justice Walk Against Cancer and Pollution
Meet at 10:30 am in front of Martin Luther King Jr. Park, in the 5700 block of 3rd Street/Carroll in Bayview Hunters Point, San Francisco. The event starts at 11 am.
Please join Greenaction, the Huntersview Mothers and Fathers Committee, residents, cancer survivors and grassroots groups from Bayview Hunters Point and other low-income and communities of color impacted by pollution as we come together for the People’s Earth Day Environmental Justice Walk Against Cancer and Pollution.
Everyone who cares about health, pollution, and environmental justice is welcome to join this event which will be held in the heart of Bayview Hunters Point, the San Francisco neighborhood that has borne much of the burden of polluting industrial operations and unsafe levels of toxic contamination.
The community can celebrate the big victory that closed the dirty PG&E Hunters Point power plant in 2006, but many pollution problems remain, including sites contaminated with cancer-causing chemicals and the threat posed by rising sea levels to neighborhoods due to the toxic sites on the waterfront.
We invite everyone to join, including residents, cancer survivors, community and grassroots groups, faith groups, youth, and elders. If your organization is willing to help out and participate, please send us an endorsement. Donations are welcome (make checks payable to Greenaction or donate online at www.greenaction.org to help pay for the event.
Sponsored by Greenaction for Health and Environmental Justice and the Huntersview Mothers and Fathers Committee for Health and Environmental Justice –

We are working with colleges, universities, public pension funds, cities, counties, and faith-based organizations. We ask that they immediately freeze any new investment in fossil-fuel companies and divest within five years.
To be buzzed in, follow the prompts on the box.
This meeting will be a workshop, led by Judy Pope, to practice brief divestment presentations. Each person will play the role of a speaker at a public meeting, and we will videotape and help one another improve our presentation skills.
The meeting will also include very brief updates on our current divestment campaigns: CalPERS and CalSTRS, UC students and alumni, and city and county governments.test
