Show Up for the Climate! Rally to #SealTheDeal
August 19 @ 6:00 PM – 8:30 PM
It’s An Emergency!
Thursday, August 19, 2021 at 6PM This week the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released its latest report on global warming. The report is unequivocal: we must cut greenhouse gas emissions rapidly and dramatically beginning right now! And right now, Congress is negotiating over what the United States will spend in the coming years to combat the climate crisis and invest in our communities. This moment is a once-in-a-generation chance for the US to address the intersecting crises of global warming, Covid-19, and increasing income and wealth inequality.
Thursday August 19 will be a National Day of Action organized by the Green New Deal Network. Here in New York City, please join 350BK, NY Renews, People’s Climate Movement/NY, and many others in a city-wide rally to #SealTheDeal (Facebook) on climate, care, jobs, and justice.
Climate champions and progressive Members of Congress will be present, urging their colleagues across the country to pass a strong budget reconciliation bill that resists cuts to progressive priorities and goes bold on the kinds of programs we need to move decisively to a renewable energy economy, support families, and promote justice and equity. Let’s show Congress our united grassroots demands for real action.
Be there! Thursday Aug 19, 6:00 pm: Battery Park (near Bowling Green: Battery Pl. & State St) with our message: Global Wars, Warming, & Inequality Are the Three Interconnected Crises Which Threaten Our Planet!
