Plan to spend Sept 8 in SF as we march for Climate, Jobs and Justice

RISE is a powerful movement of Indigenous people, frontline communities, immigrants, people of color, people of faith, young people, elders, Californians, and people from across the world. Together, we are demanding real climate leadership: a swift transition to a just, equitable, and resilient 100% renewable energy economy that protects vulnerable communities, workers, and future generations. March forth with 350 Bay Area and allies to RISE for Climate Jobs, Justice and Leadership.

Details: Congregate for the march at 10 am at the Embarcadero Plaza, where Market St. terminates at Steuart St. The march will proceed for 1.5 miles to the Civic Center. Plan to hang around the Civic Center to socialize and explore more opportunities to get involved. There are lots of ways to get to the march (see the sidebar to the left), but bringing your car will only cause you frustration. If you are coming in from outside the bay area, click here for options.

Art for Climate

Rise for Climate Justice Mural Project is organizing a Mass Street Mural Mobilization on Sept 8 at the culmination of the march. Wear your painting clothes. We are planning to paint a giant street mural using non-toxic temporary tempera and clay paints on September 8 in conjunction with Rise for Climate Jobs and Justice, at Civic Center Plaza in San Francisco. We will involve dozens of organizations and community groups to paint over 50 mural sections and aim to involve thousands of people in a well coordinated effort.

The mural project will be peaceful but will not request permission or a permit. We’ll do our best to fully inform participants of any risk, so everyone who needs to can stay safe. Watch these videos is how all of the past street murals have been done successfully. For more information contact us at info@350BayArea.org.
