A Call Out from the Rise Up For Climate Justice Campaign in Western New York
Buffalo, New York, November 2015 – In preparation for the crucial United Nations Climate Conference in Paris, the Rise Up For Climate Justice Campaign of WNY sponsored a public rally in Niagara Square in September calling on our elected officials to act in earnest to curb Climate Change.
Now, as the start of the Conference nears, the Rise Up For Climate Justice Campaign will sponsor a Community Gathering to collect our voices and make them heard by U.S. negotiators in Paris.
Supporters have signed a Climate Justice Pledge. At the Community Gathering, a scroll bearing the names of the pledge signers will be ceremoniously passed on to UB law students who will travel to Paris and present it to an official at the U.N. Climate Conference.
Please Join Us!
Food, Music and Ceremony will be provided.
Families and children are welcome.
WHEN: Saturday, November 28 at 5:30pm to 8:30pm
WHERE: Temple Beth Zion (auditorium), 805 Delaware Ave., Buffalo [Map]
The Community Gathering is Free and Open to the Public.
Come show your support for our student representatives as they prepare to send our voices to Paris calling for bold action on climate change to ensure a just and livable future.
WHO ARE WE: The Rise Up For Climate Justice campaign comprises diverse groups of Western New Yorkers including people of different faiths, students, people of color, teachers, indigenous people, labor unions, community activists, environmentalists, artists, performers and local politicians.
