Seattle Climate March: Sept 21

Seattle Climate March: Sept 21
From https://www.facebook.com/events/1446281475652868/?notif_t=plan_user_invited

Join us for a rally and march on Sept 21 in solidarity with the People’s Climate March in NYC calling for sustainable jobs to retool our economy with clean, renewable technologies as a solution to both the economic and environmental crises.

We can’t rely on politicians who’ve been dragging their feet for decades. We can only rely on ourselves and the grassroots movement we’re building.

Here in the Pacific NW we face a number of fossil fuel projects that threaten the lives of people and the environment – explosive oil trains, coal trains, and the construction of coal export terminals. The false dichotomy between jobs and the environment must be rejected. Let’s stand together – environmentalists and labor – to demand investment in renewable energy not fossil fuels.

We need jobs that pay living wages and allow families to live with dignity. We need to create and expand work that promotes healthy communities and a healthy planet. We need to fight to ensure there is a just transition for those workers whose jobs are replaced by a new energy economy.

March and rally location TBD.
