West Coast Convergence for Climate Justice and Action

richmond_protestSponsored by the Mobilization for Climate Justice, in Richmond, CA:

Climate Convergence Training:

Sept. 18-20, 2009

Climate Justice Community Event:

Saturday Sept. 19, 6-10pm

The West Coast Convergence is a 3-day event that will inform and train participants in climate change and climate justice, organizing, activism and community-based solutions to the climate crisis.

As the issue of energy consumption and problem of climate instability become more and more concerning, communities who have been historically marginalized are organizing to protect themselves from eco-political forces that are prioritizing market based “solutions” for profit over fundamental changes in energy use – the one way to avoid catastrophe.

Sponsored by the Mobilization for Climate Justice (MCJ), the Climate Convergence is the place for anyone who wants to take action on climate change; for anyone who’s fed up with empty government rhetoric and the corporate spin; for anyone who’s worried that the small steps they’re taking aren’t enough to match the scale of the problem; and for anyone who’s worried about our future and wants to do something about it.

As a sponsoring organization, MG would like to encourage you to:

  • Recruit community members of your organizations to register in the Convergence trainings.
  • Come out to the Climate Justice Community Event on Sat, Sept 19…and bring your friends and family!
