Rise for climate jobs, justice in California

On Saturday, Sept. 8, Alameda Progressives will join with 350 Bay Area cities for an international day of Climate Action that will take place in thousands of cities across six continents. This mobilization is being called to bring home the message that our elected officials cannot treat the current climate catastrophes with a business-as-usual approach. There are lives and communities being devastated. We need real climate leadership now.

The Bay Area flagship event will take place in San Francisco, however for those with families who prefer a quieter venue, please join us at the corner of Santa Clara Avenue and Park Street, noon to 1 p.m. Bring your signs and join with the community in keeping the critical matter of climate change fresh before our elected officials. We hope to see you there.
