Rise For Climate Global Day of Action

Rally and March

Sept. 8   9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Tollefson Plaza, 1548 Commerce St. Tacoma, Wash.


On Sept. 8, movements and communities will converge all over the world to Rise for Climate, Jobs, & Justice in a moving demonstration of the breadth and depth of the climate movement. Across the country, tens of thousands of people will show our power by hitting the streets, holding community forums, and educating voters about the issues – all to ensure that elected and private sector leaders make action on climate a priority.

The national United States march will take place in San Francisco. UU Ministry for Earth will be there in San Francisco, and invites you to RSVP & join the large Interfaith & UU presence at the pre-events and march.

The Seattle/Tacoma community event, sponsored by 350 Seattle, will be in Tacoma, site of the massive LNG facililty that PSE is building and that our green climate leading Governor supports. It's also the site of the Northwest Detention Center -- which is in the blast zone of the LNG facility. What better place to draw the connections between what our leaders (Gov. Inslee) are saying and what they are actually doing!

The Facebook event for the Tacoma Rise action is here. You can RSVP here. And here is a Group Carpool, to get a ride/offer a ride.
