RISE for Climate, Jobs, & Justice – July Mass Organizing Meeting

July 24, 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Hey Bay Area Residents – Join us tonight from for the Mass Mobilization Meeting where we will be planning the largest mobilization on the the West coast – the RISE march for climate, jobs and justice! Help us ensure that everyone is represented as we build a bold, visionary action that will channel power to the people through the Rise for Climate Jobs & Justice March.

RSVP below – There will be fun activities, food, and new friends to meet. Feel free to bring friends too!

The whole world is coming to San Francisco for the Global Climate Summit from Sep 12-14. Because of this, it is important that we show up not only for our state, but in solidarity with all those impacted by the climate crisis internationally.

On Saturday, September 8th, the largest mobilization for climate, jobs, and justice on the West Coast will grace the streets of San Francisco. This action will not be your ordinary march – we will shift power to demand real climate leadership that protects vulnerable communities, workers, and future generations; keep fossil fuels in the ground; develop a just, equitable, resilient 100% renewable energy economy that rapidly expands economic opportunity; and create family sustaining jobs for a thriving society that does not sacrifice any community around the world.

This is the third community grassroots organizing meeting. We will be updating everyone on the working groups progress and then breaking down into those groups giving opportunity to plug in and network for those who are just joining us as well! This is a wonderful way for you to bring your gifts and talents you were born with to create this beautiful movement! The working groups as they were at the last meeting are as follows (choose what you want to help with):

  • Logistics
  • Art
  • Labor
  • Youth
  • Elders
  • Faith
  • Digital/Comm
  • Health
  • Statement Engagement
  • Language Liberation
  • Power, Race and Gender
  • Frontline/Indigenous Mapping Project
  • Women
  • Outreach/Street Team

Join communities of all identities, spanning interracial, indigenous, faith, labor, environmental groups, youth and elders, and many more as we look forward to creating a world of equity, justice, and a sustainable and safe future for the next seven generations to come. It’s up to us, working along with APEN, California Allegory Youth Fellowship, CEJA, Idle No More SF Bay, Jobs With Justice, North Bay Organizing Project, PODER, SEIU 1021, 350.org and over 50 other organizations at a mass meeting on July 24th.

The story of a better future is unfolding as we make it possible and it’s incredible that we all get to participate in this rising! Are you part of the story? We hope to see you tonight!
