SLO County Rise For Climate
September 27, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
From the organizers:
California is seeing the impact of Climate Change right now, with longer and more extreme wildfire and drought seasons and record high temperatures. We are rising because marginalized communities across our nation —especially communities of color, disabled communities, and low- income communities— are already disproportionately impacted by climate change. We are looking at a significant threat to our food systems, public health, clean water, and clean air. Scientists state we have 10 years to halt the climate crisis. They claim that failing to do so will cause irreversible negative environmental impacts for our generation.
That’s why on September 20th, high schools across the county are striking and on September 27th communities across the globe are coming together rising for our climate. We rise for good clean jobs, clean air and water, healthy food and a sustainable environment.
Join us to celebrate everything that’s left to be preserved, celebrate that technology has caught up to the challenge, celebrate the existing climate solutions and more importantly, celebrate our oh-so-close green future.
