LABOR FOR THE PEOPLE’S CLIMATE MARCH


OUR MISSION — THE PEOPLE’S CLIMATE MARCH IS LABOR’S CLIMATE MARCH!
Labor will march side-by-side with tens of thousands from youth, climate, environmental justice, economic justice, human rights, faith and student movements. Together we will demand an ambitious global agreement to dramatically reduce global warming pollution, economic justice, good jobs, and healthy communities.

Super storm Sandy showed us that climate change is here and that if we do nothing, working families and the most vulnerable will be hardest hit. Workers and union members play an essential role in responding to climate change and extreme weather events – many workers risked their lives to repair infrastructure and keep essential services running in the aftermath of Sandy. By joining this march we challenge the 1% and corporate CEO’s who are responsible for both attacking workers and unions and polluting our environment and causing climate change.

If your union may be interested in signing on to the march, e-mail Larry Moskowitz at lcmwf2@aol.com
