Saturday, September 8

JOIN A GLOBAL DAY OF ACTION

Our next big moment to shine a spotlight on the climate crisis is September 8th and we need you to be in the streets - join an action near you or host your own. Why September 8? That’s the Saturday before state and local leaders from across the US and around the world are meeting in San Francisco for the Global Climate Action Summit. Every local leader is invited to make a commitment at the summit – so it’s the perfect opportunity for us to push them to take real climate action that protects our climate, jobs, and justice. We won’t be acting alone. 350.org is working with the Peoples Climate Movement and hundreds of organizations like the Sierra Club, the Global Grassroots Justice Alliance, Green Faith, the Service Employees International Union, and more, to make sure that this day is a big success. With your help, we can make this a truly groundbreaking moment.
