Climate justice and racial justice go hand-in-hand, as is becoming increasingly clear. We’ve seen in the recent hurricanes that the low-income communities and communities of color that are harmed the most by global warming. In DC, if we don’t act now to stop climate change, we could see Southeast D.C. underwater within decades.
Our carbon fee-and-rebate policy will economically lift those most vulnerable while cutting carbon emissions and reducing the threat of climate change. Let’s come out in support of our coalition partners working hard for racial, social, and climate justice right here in our nation’s capital and support the intersectionality of justice at the March for Racial Justice.
Our very own Mark Rakhmilevich of Green America is organizing our action for Put A Price On It at the March. We are also organizing a planning session and art build with M4RJ organizers on Thursday, September 28, at 7:00 P.M. at the Uptown Art House. If you have any questions about either event, please email Mark at MRakhmilevich@greenamerica.org.
Come join us at the build on Thursday, September 28, then march with us on Saturday, September 30!
