PDA Endorses The March to #EndFossilFuels
PDA Endorses The March to #EndFossilFuels.
As you may know, U.N. Secretary General António Guterres is holding a Climate Ambition Summit this September. He has challenged world leaders to commit to an all-hands-on-deck Acceleration Agenda at the Ambition Summit in advance of the upcoming 28th Conference of Parties in Dubai, UAE this coming November/December.
The March to #EndFossilFuels campaign is focused on pushing President Biden to commit the U.S. to these goals and more.
On Sunday, September 17th, days before the U.N. meets, we will be marching in the streets of New York City to show support for Secretary General Guterres’ challenge. We will be marching to assure President Biden that the citizens of the U.S. know that we are in the midst of a devastating Climate Emergency that demands he make this commitment on behalf of the U.S. We will be marching because the President has the emergency executive powers at his disposal to make such a commitment.
PDA National as well as PDA Colorado, New Mexico, Florida, Oregon, Massachusetts, Arizona and Illinois have all signed on as endorsers of next month’s March to #EndFossilFuels, and we are lending our organizational support in every way we can.
There are many ways you can play a part in this historic moment
- If you can join us in NYC, PDA will have a hub in the march and we will be marching! (or join the march team and help from a distance).
- We will support the coalition phone banking effort to help drive a huge turnout. SIGN UP HERE
- Our Congressional Liaison team’s central September focus will be the concurrent Climate Emergency Resolution that we feel is a powerful congressional complement to Secretary General Guterres’ call for an all-hands-on-deck agenda to accelerate climate action and the demands of the march to #EndFossilFuels. The house version of the resolution is currently at 75 co-sponsors. We want to take it over 100.
- And there are many more ways we could tap in, too, especially if you live in NYC.
