People's Climate March

Peoples Climate March Sunday, September 21

Assemble at 10:15am on south side of 57th St. at Broadway
.

The big corporations that are fighting measures to reduce global warming pollution are the same corporate interests that are attacking our wages, benefits and working conditions. We know from our own experience they will do anything to increase their profits, from firing workers who stand up for justice on the job to covering up the effects of toxic chemicals on our health.

But there’s no denying the facts. All of us who lived through Superstorm Sandy know that climate change is here and it is no joke. Increasing numbers of dangerous weather events — hurricanes, tornadoes, droughts, rising sea levels — are putting all of us in danger.

It’s time to take a stand. On Sunday, September 21, I’ll be among the tens of thousands who will march in New York City. We’ll demand a global agreement to reduce global warming pollution and stand up for good jobs in a clean energy economy and healthy communities.

Join me. We’ll assemble for a labor rally at 11 am on the south side of 57th Street at Broadway. RSVP with the CWA App so we can keep you updated as the march gets closer and so you can share your photos of the day’s events. If you don’t have the app yet, click here to download it or text APP to 69866 to have a link sent to your phone.

Over 1,000 organizations from across our movement for economic justice and democracy, including CWA and 70 other unions, have endorsed this march. You can get more information at peoplesclimate.org/march. I look forward to seeing you there.

In Solidarity,

Chris Shelton
