National Climate Strike in San Ramon

When; Friday, Dec. 6 @ 8:30 - noon

Where: San Ramon City Hall, 7000 Bollinger Canyon Rd, San Ramon 94582

The September 20th Climate Strike was the largest day of action for climate justice ever. On December 6th, as world leaders gather at the UN’s annual climate conference, young people across America will join a national #ClimateStrike to take the momentum from September to our elected officials’ doorsteps.

In September, many politicians shared nice words of encouragement. But, we didn’t walk out of school and work to earn their praise. We joined the #ClimateStrike because our lives depend on elected leaders treating this crisis like the emergency it is.

On December 6th, we’ll show up at the offices of our political leaders and ask them, are you ready to stand with our generation and fight for a Green New Deal?

ARTICLE in Common Dreams: " 'Existential Threat to Civilization': Planetary Tipping Points Make Climate Bets Too Dangerous, Scientists Warn"

"I don't think people realize how little time we have left," Owen Gaffney, a global sustainability analyst at the Stockholm Resilience Center at Stockholm University and a co-author of the paper, told National Geographic. "We'll reach 1.5°C in one or two decades, and with three decades to decarbonize it's clearly an emergency situation."

STOP DRIVING
GLOBAL WARMING

This December 11-15 join the 10th annual 5-day monthly boycott of cars by using public transit, walking, or biking.

Automobiles are the leading cause of CO2 emissions in our nation and the number one source of water and air pollution. Through crashes and pollution, cars are responsible for more than 2 million deaths around the world EVERY YEAR.

The power for change is in OUR hands, and at this crucial hour honoring this Indigenous-led boycott is essential to returning to a safe and sane way of life, based on respect for Mother Earth.

Consumer demand for oil fuels wars and devastation across the planet. Join the Boycott in solidarity with Mother Earth and the people of Venezuela and Iran!

We are 100% volunteer and depend on your participation to sustain our efforts!
