Join us in the heart of Los Angeles in Pershing Square as we converge while representatives from around the world convene at the United Nations Climate Summit (COP21) in Paris, France.
This isn't like previous climate summits, Paris is our “last chance” for a meaningful international treaty to reduce greenhouse gas pollution in time to avoid irreversible climate disruption. All the available wiggle room has been used up.
Now it's up to us to make our voices heard and demand an end to business as usual. And that's exactly what thousands of us will do as we gather in Pershing Square in a memory making display of people power.
We will join millions of our brothers and sisters around the world who are also raising their demand for a global agreement with binding, enforceable and scientifically-based pollution reduction targets. Humanity must end the stranglehold of the fossil fuel industry in order to create a clean and sustainable energy future that puts human need over corporate greed.
People are coming from all parts of greater Los Angeles - from the Harbor area and Long Beach to the South Bay and South Los Angeles, from the Eastside to the Westside, from the Valley to the beaches Southern Californians will gather together to help show the world that we join the global call for a healthy and sustainable future!
