In a matter of weeks, presidents and prime ministers from around the world will gather in New York City for a landmark U.N. summit on climate change. Communities across the country are mobilizing to make sure their voices are heard by converging in the streets of New York City on Sept. 21st at the largest climate march ever.
But to make this the biggest climate march in history, the momentum can't be confined to New York -- which is why we're organizing a tour up and down the East Coast to spread that energy, and we're coming to Portland on July 31st.
Here are the details:
What: An inspiring organizing meeting to get ready for the People's Climate March.
When: July 31st, 5:30 - 9 PM
Where: Lee Auditorium at the Wishcamper Center, 34 Bedford Street, University of Southern Maine, Portland
Why: To meet local activists near you and create an organizing process that engages Maine in the People’s Climate March and creates meaningful new coalitions and connections.
Portland has been ground zero for a growing backlash against tar sands in the Northeast -- and the folks in South Portland just had a historic victory that banned tar sands from the city.
You're already leading the way on key local action, and the People's Climate March this September is one of our best chances to demand global action on the climate crisis - and the first step towards making Portland part of that is coming to the community organizing meeting on July 31.
Let's make this amazing.
