Boston RISE for Climate, Jobs, Justice: Rally & People's School

Climate change impacts people of color, low-wage workers, and Indigenous peoples—here and around the world—first and worst. Extreme heat, drought, floods, wildfires, storms, and poisoned oceans caused by fossil fuel pollution worsen the war, famine, poverty, violence, and oppression they already face. Many are left with no choice but to leave their homes and seek refuge in the U.S., only to be met with more oppression by our own government.

Families are being torn apart. Ecosystems are collapsing. People are dying. As our own Governor & Legislature in MA continue to accept money from the fossil fuel industry and then fail to enact needed climate and immigration reforms—we'll prove that real climate leadership rises from the grassroots up and doesn't leave anyone behind.

On Sept 8 (and beyond), local climate and immigrant justice groups are joining forces to strengthen relationships across our movements, build collective power, and demand accountability and ACTION on climate change and immigrant rights: 100% renewable energy for all. Dignity & respect for all.
