This Friday, September 20th, as part of the Labor Network for Sustainability, CWA will be joining young people from around the world in walking out of their classes, their jobs and their homes to demand real climate action from our elected officials.
With record-breaking temperatures, flooding, and storms in the last few months alone, we can clearly see that climate change is a real and pressing threat.
Pointing to the inspiration of the labor movement, young people are calling to “stop business as usual” and demand action from our elected officials. CWA District 1 stands in solidarity, calling for action on climate change while also recognizing the important opportunities in this crisis to create millions of good jobs and strengthen unions.
CWA District 1 is proud to stand with our brothers and sisters in the Labor Network for Sustainability and People’s Climate Movement NY on Friday, September 20th to demand action on climate change.
Schedule of events:
12pm: Rally in Foley Square followed by a march to Battery Park.
3pm – 5pm: Rally in Battery Park followed by speeches from key climate leaders and activists
