RISE FOR CLIMATE, JOBS, & JUSTICE CA: MAIN MARCH EVENT in SAN FRANCISCO

In city streets, town squares and capital buildings across the world, people will rise up to demand politicians stand with their communities and deliver more than just words just days before the Global Climate Action Summit in San Francisco.

On Saturday, September 8th, the largest mobilization for climate, jobs, and justice on the West Coast will grace the streets of San Francisco.

When: September 8, 2018 @ 10 a.m.

Where: Starts at Embarcadero Plaza, 4 Embarcadero Ctr, San Francisco, CA 94111
Marching to Civic Center Plaza, between McAllister St., Grove St., Polk St., Larkin St.

This action will not be your ordinary march. We will shift power to demand real climate leadership that protects vulnerable communities, workers, and future generations; keep fossil fuels in the ground; develop a just, equitable, resilient 100% renewable energy economy that rapidly expands economic opportunity; and create family sustaining jobs for a thriving society that does not sacrifice any community around the world.

RESOURCE FAIR at Civic Center Plaza:

At Civic Center Plaza we will be hosting a Resource Fair – where partner organizations, campaigns, and projects can showcase the work that they do, educate people about their specific perspectives, and where people can get involved in these efforts for the long haul.

This is not intended for commercial vendors who simply desire a crowd – but for active partners in Rise for Climate, Jobs, & Justice and related social movement work. If you are interested in hosting a table – we welcome groups who:

-Have publicly endorsed Rise for Climate, Jobs & Justice
-Are actively promoting the event to their networks, members, and supporters

If your organization wishes to participate, contact: resourcefair [at] riseforclimate.org
