March for Climate Justice Through Racial Justice

September 20, 2020 at 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm

On Sept. 20th, we are marching because we know that addressing the climate crisis effectively rests in our commitment to racial justice. This isn’t the first march calling for climate justice and racial justice, and it won’t be the last. The march will kick off and set a tone for Climate Week by prioritizing Black, Brown, and Indigenous peoples, making clear the intersection between climate justice and racial justice.

More info about the march can be found here:

We cannot achieve climate justice without racial justice. Make plans now to march with us on Sept. 20!

If you can, please make a donation to help make it possible to provide face masks and hand sanitizer, to purchase materials needed for art builds, and to help cover the other costs related to this effort. Your contribution is appreciated! https://actionnetwork.org/fundraising/nyc-climate-week-actions-commitment-to-racial-justice

At this event, *masks will be required, and social distancing will be encouraged.* Thank you.
