THIS IS AN INVITATION TO CHANGE EVERYTHING.
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, Riverkeeper will 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. We will be joined by countless organizations ranging from unions, environmental groups, religious leader and more. Check out the list of sponsors here.
The contingent line-up for the Peoples Climate March has been announced: http://peoplesclimate.org/lineup/. We will be in ‘the green section’ on Central Park West, between 71st and 72nd, among others marching for ‘food and water justice’. The entrance to this section is at 72nd Street.
At this entrance, please look for a large Waterkeeper Alliance banner (pictured here), where our staff will direct you to our group where you will see another large Waterkeeper Alliance banner.
Please join Riverkeeper and Waterkeepers from around the world on Sunday, September 21st in New York City for a march on climate change that will change history, and to change history, we need everyone on board.
