“In September, world leaders are coming to New York City for a UN summit on the climate crisis. UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon is urging governments to support an ambitious global agreement to dramatically reduce global warming pollution.
With our future on the line and the whole world watching, we’ll take a stand to bend the course of history. We’ll take to the streets to demand the world we know is within our reach: 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 water, and healthy communities.
On September 21st, 2014, we will peacefully flood the streets in historic numbers, both in New York City and in solidarity events around the world; over 1,000 businesses, unions, faith groups, schools, social justice groups, environmental groups and more; committed to principles of environmental justice and equality — representing the communities that are being hit the hardest by climate change.”
