Get to stepping: Join the Global Climate Strike
Tomorrow we march.
Tomorrow we join hands with everyone, everywhere to take a stand for the survival of humanity.
Tomorrow we get to stepping…. one stride at a time, confidently rising as a collective for justice.
Tomorrow is the Global Climate Strike. It is part of the UN Climate Summit’s week of action.
The strike will see millions of people walk out of their jobs or school for the day and join protesters to march for climate justice and bring further attention to the need to combat climate change. It will be the largest climate mobilization in human history…and we are just getting started.
Four corporations– Ben & Jerry’s, Lush Cosmetics, Patagonia, and Seventh Generation — have made the socially conscious decision to shut down for the day, encouraging their employees to march.
Tomorrow could be the tipping point of change, but only if we all rise and march together and then webbed to hold our leaders accountable. As the march organizers state, “Our house is on fire. Let’s act like it.”
There is a reason we launched Build a Movement 2020 on Martin Luther King Jr. Day earlier this year. Social justice and critical change will only come when we as citizens create enough of a movement that leaders in political and business leaders are forced to respond.
“The arc of the moral universe is long,” Dr. King said, “but it bends toward justice.”
Climate restoration is crucial for the survival of humanity. It is the justice issue of our time.
The clock is ticking. We can work together to restore a healthy climate for all of humanity now and for future generations. It’s time for worldwide Climate Restoration Emergency Action to ensure that humans can survive on Earth.
We invite you to share pictures with us from all over the world. Tag @buildamovement2020 on Facebook and @B_A_M_2020 on Instagram. We’ll repost, reshare and shout your march for justice to everyone in our networks and partnerships.
See you outside tomorrow!
