Help build the Northern California People's Climate Rally to be held in conjunction with the UN Climate Summit and People's Climate March in New York. Come to a planning meeting on August 26 to help with outreach, program, and logistics. See information sheet below to learn more about the rally.
PEOPLE'S CLIMATE RALLY
in solidarity with the historic September 21 NYC event called by 350.org and hundreds of local and national environmental, trade union and social justice organizations across the country.
All Out for Sun., Sept. 21
2 pm – 5 pm
Oakland's Lake Merritt Park Amphitheater
Amphitheater is the new grassy area at the end of Lake Merritt near 12th Street, across from the Henry J. Kaiser Center, a few blocks from Lake Merritt BART Station.
The historic NYC protest on Sunday, September 21 is 2 days before the UN Climate Summit of world leaders. Tragically, more inaction or inadequate action can be expected. We want to show the world that the climate crisis can no longer be ignored, that the planet earth is burning, that massive & unprecedented measures must be taken now to assure humanity’s future.
The People’s Climate March is shaping up to be one of the largest climate justice mobilizations in history,
with organizers of the march setting a goal of getting a half million people to demonstrate in NYC.

While people all over the country are mobilizing for New York, many of us will gather in support in Oakland.
Let's make the West Coast Solidarity action a great success!
Goals of the Rally:
A global agreement to dramatically and rapidly reduce global warming pollution
A world with an economy that works for people and the planet
A world safe from the ravages of climate change
A world with peace and justice, good jobs, clean air and water, healthy communities
