Rally for Community Resilience in the Face of Climate Disasters
Friday, September 7, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Join the Stop Urban Shield Coalition as we rally against the last Urban Shield to take place!
Coinciding with the Peoples Climate Movement – Bay Area mobilization, we will be rallying against the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office hosting of the final Urban Shield militarized war games and weapons expo. While the Sheriff’s Office and law enforcement officials justify the need for militarized policing programs by citing a need to respond to emergency situations and disasters, we know that true emergency preparedness comes from building up community strength, response, and resilience.
Join us for a powerful rally and mobilization as we draw the connection between militarism and climate change, and demand real community based preparedness and responses to natural and man-made disasters that do not rely on militarization.
