This Arts Kit was put together for people, groups and communities who
are organizing for the Sept 8th Rise for Climate global day of action, and
for a fossil free world powered by 100% renewable energy for all.
This group is planning, executing, and driving emails, facebook shares, tweets, and all the other digital pieces to move people to the streets. If your organization has strong capacity to do digital work, join this group!
This group is hitting the street day to day to talk to folks at their homes, at farmers markets, on every street corner, and bring them into the largest march for climate jobs and justice on the west coast.
This group is bringing working people, organized labor, and the people who are going to build a just equitable transition of our economy into the march. Join here if you can help us bring unions into the march!
This group is working with every faith community, lifting the voices of congregations, churches, synogogues, mosques, temples, and more. Join here if you want to bring your faith community to the march – ca.riseforclimate.org/faith
This groups’ goal is to make sure we are standing up for climate jobs and justice in every language. If you are interested in helping with translation, interpretation, or other aspects that can make our efforts ringing from every voice, join here!
This group is recruiting mothers & families to march and working to create a safe, family-friendly environment including engaging activities for kids. We need face-painters, music-makers, mural-painters and art-project /street-theater leaders. Join here if you want to help us get families to the march and make this a fantastic experience for them!
Rise for Climate, Jobs, and Justice goes beyond just a single day – it’s about bringing together the diverse voices, organizations, and groups working to confront the climate crisis and bring about community-led solutions. This work happens day-in and day-out, all around the world – and the march is both an expression of our collective power, and an opportunity to grow this ongoing work.
At Civic Center Plaza we will be hosting a Resource Fair – where partner organizations, campaigns, and projects can showcase the work that they do, educate people about their specific perspectives, and where people can get involved in these efforts for the long haul.
This is not intended for commercial vendors who simply desire a crowd – but for active partners in Rise for Climate, Jobs, & Justice and related social movement work. If you are interested in hosting a table – we welcome groups who:
Rise for Climate, Jobs, & Justice will provide standard 6’ folding tables, and based on needs and logistical capacity – shade tents and electrical power. Tables can be reserved on a sliding-scale basis – we are asking groups to contribute $25 – $500 based on their annual budget and financial means. If your organization requires additional financial assistance – just let us know, we want to make sure this fair lifts up the grassroots!
