Our unions are mobilizing for the major climate justice march next Sunday, September 17, in Manhattan. We hope all of you who can will put on your union t-shirts and come out—along with your friends and family, this is a family-friendly event!—and take action for an important priority of our unions. Click here to sign up, so we know you’re coming—then ask three other people to join you and sign up, too!
Our members will gather and march with other unions in the Labor Hub, which will line up at 54th and Broadway, starting at 12 p.m. (pro tip: wherever you’re coming from, don’t try to walk down Broadway, which will be crowded with marchers; cross over to Broadway on 54th!)
If you live in New Jersey, we can travel together. If you’re near New Brunswick, our members and students will be rallying at 10 a.m. at the New Brunswick train station (French and Albany), then catching the 10:29 a.m. Northeast Corridor train into Manhattan. From Newark, take PATH or NJ Transit into the city. From Camden, you can sign up here for a bus.
This Thursday evening, our members will be participating in art builds along with RU Progressive and student allies. In New Brunswick, meet at Douglass Student Center Meeting Room A (100 George St.). In Newark, meet at the NJ Environmental Justice Alliance office (45 Academy St.) from 5–7:30 p.m. In Camden, email email@example.com for details.
Let’s raise our voices to demand that President Biden take bold climate action: reject new fossil fuel projects, phase out fossil fuel production, and declare a climate emergency. If you’re interested in participating in the Climate Justice Committee, email firstname.lastname@example.org. And join us this Sunday—click here to sign up!
