CLIMATE JUSTICE NOW - Raise your voice!

Dear climate friends!

It has been quite the year for climate activism, 2020, and we are going to need to make 2021 an even stronger year for action on climate justice. We are entering the 2nd year of the decade in which we must cut emissions in half. How can we do this?

Right now the City budget is being drawn up and our voices are needed to speak up for funding climate in the budget.

Please join us in the following events and activities and let’s work together for the changes we need.
