We invite you to join the South Asians for Climate Justice contingent at the People’s Climate March in New York City on Sunday, September 21 — the largest climate march in history.Why march?
- Every issue we care about (women’s rights, immigrant rights, economic justice, etc.) will be made worse in a world of food shortages, extreme weather, rising seas, etc.
- By 2030, climate change is expected to kill 250,000 people per year, and India, Bangladesh, and Nepal are 3 of the top 4 most vulnerable nations in the world
- World leaders are meeting in New York for a UN summit on the climate crisis — our actions can help bend the course of historyHere’s how to get involved:The emerging South Asians for Climate Justice group met in Berkeley, California to discuss our unique role in this issue:
- we all live in one of the most climate-destructive countries in the world
- yet our home countries, our friends, and families are the ones who are most impacted by climate change
- collectively, we have the power and the opportunity to demand climate justice
- equitable, just, and environmentally sustainable solutions have local benefits here in the US and positive impacts globallyWe invite you to march with us, for us and in solidarity with people both here and in South Asia who are going to be impacted by this and demand climate justice now! We want to be visible as a community that demands real action on climate change — the most critical political issue of the 21st century.Have questions? Can’t come but want to learn more?
