Join ALEPH for the People’s Climate March, NYC, September 21

event_172910292Join ALEPH, our NYC affiliate Romemu, our friends from The Shalom Center and Hazon, and over 850 other partnering organizations for the historic People’s Climate March in NYC on September 21.

The month of Elul is a time of tshuvah and selichot — return and forgiveness — and a perfect time to make amends with our green glowing planet we call home. Those present will include local New York-area community groups, international NGO’s, grassroots networks, churches and faith organizations, and many more. You can see a list of participating organizations here.

Because this is a “movement of movements” moment, the People’s Climate March is being organized in a participatory, open-source model. This means that there isn’t a central “decision-making” body or single coalition. Rather, groups and individuals are collaborating with some basic shared agreements around respect, collaboration, trust, and many are using the Jemez Principles of Environmental Justice.

This September is going to be a success because of the work we all do together – not because of any one person or organization. Take the initiative to organize your community, your school, your workplace, and your neighbors. Find out how you can help or how your organization can support the People’s Climate March here.

Awake to the challenge of Climate change for this historic event.
