The NYC climate action sponsored by Peoples Climate Movement will be on Thursday, Sept. 6 at 5:30 starting at Foley Square. Why is NYC having our climate action 2 days before the rest of the world? The thinking is: Sept 8 (the main global day of climate action) is the date of the NYC Labor Day Parade (the NYC Central Labor Council has ceded the actual Labor Day to the West Indian Day Parade and has, for many years now, had its Labor Day Parade on the following Saturday–this year it’s Sept 8) and it is a 4-day weekend for public schools and CUNY due to Rosh Hashsanah on Sept 10 & 11. So that weekend is really not feasible for a mass action. But a warm Thursday night, right after the start of school might be a welcome time for a climate action. So please save the date.
