Join me, Eve Ensler & OBR at The People's Climate March on Sunday, 21 September, in NYC!

I will attend the event below, carrying a NOW round. Want to join me?

RISE w/ Eve & OBR at The People's Climate March on Sunday, 21 September, in NYC!
Dear Risers,
We are in the midst of an environmental crisis and the time has come to unite with our sisters and brothers across all sectors to demand a new model of sustainable development, a model that includes safe, people-centered renewable energy systems and reverses our current path of environmental destruction.
On Sunday, 21 September, I am RISING at the People's Climate March in NYC and I hope you'll join me!
The March will take place two days before the United Nations Climate Summit, and we need to show the world leaders that we will not stand by while they continue to ignore this crisis.
Let's help create the Largest Climate March in History!
We've seen the power of One Billion Rising to create a global shift in consciousness around violence against women and girls. Let's use this power to do the same with violence against our mother Earth.
We cannot ignore the historical and interrelated destructive treatment of both women and nature in our current dominator model of societies. The longstanding history of violating the Earth and violating women is deeply rooted in the same problem and societal imbalances. To achieve long term solutions, we will need to deal with root causes and systemic change and this will mean liberating the silenced and oppressed voices of women and nature.
Together we stand for the Earth and future generations. Together we can make our voices heard. Together we can create a revolution.
Details for the meeting point and route below.
With gratitude and love,
