Getting to the March

The march will be taking place on Market St., beginning near the Ferry Building at Embarcadero Plaza and ending at Civic Center — both highly accessible by public transit.

Taking mass transit is highly advised. Parking will be very limited, as there will likely be road closures throughout the area that may impact accessibility.

Not able to make it to San Francisco? Join one of the 250+ rise actions across the U.S.


The march will end at Civic Center Plaza, near San Francisco City Hall. There will be music, and dozens of information tables from the organizations that helped make this march possible. This is a great way to make sure that our impact goes beyond the 1-day march – but that we connect, build, and grow organizations that are doing vital ongoing work.

More about the Mural

More about the Rise Together Moment.

We demand Real Climate Leadership, which requires:

  • Environmental, racial, and economic justice for all
  • No new fossil fuel development and a managed decline of existing fossil fuel production
  • A just transition to 100% renewable energy that protects workers, Indigenous peoples and frontline communities — both in these extractive industries and more broadly — and ensures family-sustaining jobs with the right to unionize, that are safe for people and the planet
  • Just and equitable resiliency and recovery efforts led by the communities most impacted;

By acting together, we can end the era of fossil fuels and save the climate we all depend on.

People on every continent will come together to Rise for Climate, Jobs & Justice.

On 8-9 September we will rise together in our neighborhoods to take action, telling the story of the communities we want, and showing governments how to follow our lead. We’ll connect all our local efforts globally to help make an unstoppable wave of people’s climate leadership – from our town halls, to our schools, and places of worship.

We are at a tipping point. 2020 is a threshold for meeting global targets to tackle the climate crisis. We are fast running out of time to act, but meaningful action from national governments has been slow at best.

With climate impacts escalating — we don’t have the luxury to wait to see what bureaucratic negotiations have to offer. We need our local leaders to step up and do everything they can right now to stop the fossil fuel industry and build 100% renewable energy for all.
We believe that the Global Climate Action Summit, being held in California on September 12-14 presents a unique opportunity to pressure local governments and institutions to raise their ambition and do more for climate action. Every city and local leader has been invited to make a commitment around the summit.

We think that it’s an opportunity to set a new bar for climate leadership, drive ambition and close the gap between what justice and science clearly tells us – and the achingly slow action by our national governments, where responsibility can no longer be passed off to national governments and international negotiations.

Our actions won’t stop with this mobilization, we will keep the pressure up on our local, state and national leaders to turn words into deeds for a fossil free world.

Every local leader has a the power, and a moral obligation to do everything they can to stop the fossil fuel industry and build 100% renewable energy for all.

The bar for climate leadership is simple: public, actionable commitments to a fast and fair transition to a fossil free world, powered by 100% renewable energy for all.

We can’t keep powering our lives with dirty fuels from the last century. It’s time to repower our communities with clean, renewable energy from the sun, earth, wind and water.

We need every local government and institution to commit to building 100% renewable energy and blocking new dirty energy projects in their community. Anything less than that is out of line with what science and justice demand.

The Global Climate Action Summit is a gathering of mayors & local governments, business and civil society in San Francisco on September 12-14 2018. Its stated goal is to showcase climate action taking place around the world, and inspire deeper commitments from each other and from national governments. It will be the largest gathering of its kind to take place, and we believe it’s an opportunity to pressure local leaders to step up and do much more to stop the fossil fuel industry and build 100% renewable energy for all.

But this summit needs to be about more than just words. We need communities, cities, regions, governments and businesses, places of worship, to significantly increase their ambitions — and go beyond the Paris agreement, to close the gap left by slow national action. But time is running out, the time for false solutions is over: we need a global, just transition away from fossil fuels and towards 100% renewable energy for all.

Rise is a global moment organized by hundreds of local leaders and dozens of partners. It’s coordinated by a global steering group in conjunction with our global and national partners. You can see the full list of groups involved here.

Every individual action is different, but most are organized by local groups who are leading the way for climate action in their communities. You can host an action in your community and register it on the map above.

If your organization would like to support Rise For Climate, Jobs and Justice, contact the steering group here.

There are many ways your organization can support this mobilization. You could hold an action and register it on the map, help promote the day of action or join as a partner. If you have any questions, get in touch with us here.
