The conversation about Climate Change has an urgency that needs to be addressed right now. Now under the new administration, all the progress that has been done is regressing. The Peoples Climate Movement’s work focuses on the fall results of last elections. The New Jersey People’s Climate Movement Rally serves a variety of purposes: to inform the audience about the People’s Climate Movement Platform in order to raise their level of awareness so they can support it, to help educate Americans to make everyday choices about how they use their energy, and ultimately engage the community into civic action.

The event will take place from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm at Warinanco Park (Island Behind the lake) in Roselle, New Jersey. This Day of Action is sponsored by the People’s Climate Movement, Food and Water Watch, Climate Reality Project, Organizing For Action, Environmental Justice Green Drinks, Tierra Madres, Calm and Mindful, LLC and many others we are waiting for confirmation.

The NEW JERSEY PEOPLE’S CLIMATE MOVEMENT RALLY will have speakers, artists, community organizers, environmental leaders, and social/environmental activists. The event is free and open to the public.  We would like you to join us that day

“PEOPLE’S CLIMATE MOVEMENT PLATFORM

·         Directly and rapidly reduce greenhouse gas and toxic pollution to successfully combat climate change and improve public health

·         Mandate a transition to an equitable and sustainable New Energy and Economic Future that limits the temperature increase to 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels

·         Provide a Just Transition for communities and workers negatively impacted by the shift to a New Energy and Economic Future that includes targeted economic opportunity and provides stable income, health care, and education

·         Demand that every job pays a wage of at least $15 an hour, protects workers, and provides a good standard of living, pathways out of poverty, and a right to organize

·         Ensure that in the New Energy and Economic Future, investments are targeted to create pathways for low-income people and people of color to access good jobs and improve the lives of communities of color, indigenous peoples, low-income people, small farmers, women, and workers.

·         Make bold investments in the resilience of states, cities, tribes, and communities that are threatened by climate change; including massive investments in infrastructure systems from water, transportation, and solid waste to the electrical grid and safe, green building and increasing energy efficiency that will also create millions of jobs in the public and private sector

·         Reinvest in a domestic industrial base that drives towards an equitable and sustainable New Energy and Economic Future, and fight back against the corporate trade-induced global race to the bottom

·         Market and policy based mechanisms must protect human rights and critical, native ecosystems and reduce pollution at source”
