Why We March

On September 8th, in conjunction with the Global Climate Action Summit, we will be in the streets of San Diego – alongside marchers in San Francisco and at hundreds of actions around the world – to show our leaders that we will accept nothing less than an immediate transition to clean energy, green jobs and a just and healthy planet.
We will come together to strengthen our movement. We will demonstrate our power and resistance. We will bring our solutions to the climate crisis and the problems that affect our communities to our leaders at the Global Climate Action Summit and demand action.

Join us as we march to:

  • Advance solutions to the climate crisis that are rooted in racial, social and economic justice and committed to protecting front-line communities and workers – including supporting local policies that move us to 100% clean energy and address environmental injustices, like Community Choice Energy and building out mass transit and active transportation options.
  • Commit to voting for climate champions who will promote solutions and block federal attacks on our air, water, and California’s landmark climate policies.
  • Commit to keeping fossil fuels in the ground and no new fossil fuel projects.
  • Invest in our communities and transition rapidly to a clean and renewable energy economy that works for all – create good paying jobs that provide family-sustaining wages and benefits and preserve workers’ rights, including the right to unionize.

March with us on September 8th as we rise for our families, our communities and our planet.
