Choose Action Now Event - Global Climate Strike

CODEPINK and Veterans for Peace (VFP) join Youth vs. Apocalypse (YVA) in hosting a Bay Area Action in San Francisco as part of the Global Climate Strike on November 10, 2022

Choose Action Now is the youth’s response to failed negotiations and 27 years of delay on substantial climate action by world leaders. Through the collective power of our movement, we will demonstrate that youth leaders CAN be the change we want to see in the world, regardless of the outcomes of the negotiations at COP27.

We are coming together to confront the systems  that sacrifice our lives for a profit, be that climate destroying fossil fuel companies, or those that profit from and promote militarism and war.  In the middle of war around the world and violence on our streets, we are gathering to celebrate our community and each other –  to show that we are not disposable and that young people and the planet must be protected from all forms of violence.

March Route: We will gather at Embarcadero Plaza then go a 1.2 mile march past a military recruitment office and Lockheed Martin , then return to the plaza. Map here

Schedule:
10:00am - Gather, practice chants, learn song/ movement
10:30am - Short march
11:20am - Speakers, Hip Hop performances, workshops and lunch
1:00pm - end

And wear pink!

Can we count you in?
