A Movement Gathering for Earth Day
Strategic National Perspectives on the Climate Justice Movement
April 22, 2011
CARECEN 2845 West 7th Street, Los Angeles, CA 90005
Communities for a Better Environment, the Grassroots Global Justice Alliance, and the Labor Community Strategy Center, invite you to a movement gathering to discuss strategic perspectives on the US and world climate justice movements.
From last year's Cochabamba People's Summit to the upcoming UN climate negotiations in South Africa this December, the international climate justice movement is surging to adapt to and to reverse rising seas and other terrifying impacts of catastrophic climate change already being suffered across the planet. Yet in the US, a recent Harris poll showed a 20% drop in the number of Americans who believe climate change is real!
How do we confront the challenge of building a climate justice movement in the US?
Where do we find our strength?
Join us to help answer these questions in a fighting-spirit celebration of Earth Day!
Find out more about false solutions like REDD and REDD+ and people’s alternatives like the Cochabamba Protocol and the Draft Declaration on the Rights of Mother Earth.
Join the growing network of social justice groups coordinating work for climate justice on the road to the next round of United Nations negotiations in Durban, South Africa this December.
Connect with organizers working at the intersection of climate, environmental justice, and human rights, from organizations across the country, like Black Mesa Water Coalition, Southwest Organizing Project, Movement Generation, Little Village Environmental Justice Organization, Mountain Justice, and many more.
