THE PEOPLE’S CLIMATE MARCH
SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 21st
Join the Jewish Climate Change Campaign as we make history. This September the UN is hosting a summit on climate change in New York City. We will join with citizens of all faiths and backgrounds in the People’s Climate March to demand a world with an economy that works for people and the planet. A world safe from the ravages of climate change. A world with good jobs, clean air, and healthy communities for everyone.
The People’s Climate March is a unique opportunity to stand up as Jewish community for what we believe in. There is strength in numbers. Bring your family, friends, neighbors, and colleagues, to take action for big change.Click here to register for the People’s Climate March on Sunday, September 21.
The Jewish Meeting Point is on West 58th Street between 8th and 9th Avenues. You must enter from 9th Avenue. Look for the Jewish banners. There will be a multi-faith concert and prayers starting at 11:00 am. The March begins at 11:30 am. We expect the Jewish group to step off at 12:30 pm or later. Be prepared with food, hat, sunscreen, and signs and banners (no sticks). Wear your Hazon or other Jewish t-shirt and bring your shofar. Check the People’s Climate March website for more details. To receive last minute updates about the Jewish contingent, please register with the Jewish Climate Change Campaign or the Shalom Center.
Join Hazon for pictures at the Topsy Turvy Bus at Columbia Hillel (606 W 115th St) at 9 am, and then March down together to the destination above.
This is a call to build a movement – small actions, taken together, add up to big change.
