From the organizers:
Mobile Bay Group of Alabama Chapter Sierra Club is planning to participate in Sierra Club’s Resist Campaign, a program that seeks to defend our bedrock environmental laws. National Sierra Club’s Resist team is helping to coordinate this year’s Peoples Climate Movement: Rise for Climate, Jobs, and Justice national day of action on September 8th.
Our goal is to bring people from the Mobile and Baldwin County communities together to give them inspiration about what can be done locally to prepare our coastal area for the impacts of climate change and how to transition our state off of fossil fuels into renewable energy resources, while producing a sustainable positive growth economy.
It will be less focused on one mass mobilization, and instead place a greater emphasis on local actions around the country and world. This year there will be more focus on building up a distributed network of events! So, while there will be a mass mobilization in San Francisco, CA, all of us who are outside that region are encouraged to host our own event, rather than travel to one main march.
This event is not hosted by ASAN. As one of ASAN’s roles is to share information and resources across our network so as to maximize all of our impact, we routinely post events that we ourselves are not hosting. If you have questions regarding this event, please contact event organizers rather than ASAN.
