The tragedy in Paris has only strengthened our resolve to stand together for a peaceful and livable planet. This movement for climate justice has always also been a movement for peace– no matter what background or religion, a way for us to protect our common home. So as world leaders gather in Paris at the end of November for the COP global climate summit, folks around the world will be marching in their communities.
This Saturday, November 21, you’re invited to the northern & central California regional march & rally in Oakland. This one of the first of many around the world, so it’s especially important that we come out! It’s a family & kid-friendly event, rain or shine. Here are the details:
IT IS THIS SATURDAY! November 21st
