Oct 14: We come together for climate action

The time for Climate Action is NOW. In Seattle, join a diverse coalition of communities of color, workers, immigrants, activists and everyday folk on October 14 as we build upon last year's wildly successful People’s ClimateMarch in New York to send a message that will be heard from Seattle to Paris: Our communities are united in the fight against climate change. Climate change affects low-income and communities of color disproportionately, and a just transition away from fossil fuels means making sure that no one gets left behind, especially the communities most affected.

Naomi Klein

This Changes Everything author Naomi Klein will join local speakers from all walks of life for an amazing short program including local music and entertainment. We'll gather at 5:00PM at City Hall Plaza to make climate ribbons, and then march at 5:30PM sharp to Occidental Park, where we'll have speakers and video projections of people from across the state, talking about how climate change is affecting our lives, what we're doing about it, and what our hopes for the future are. We'll also have an interview tent set up to recordthe stories of those present. Our world is changing faster than anyone expected, and our voices must be heard in Paris and beyond. Please join us, and if you can, please spread the word on Facebook.
