A Message from the CT Climate Crisis Mobilization Group

Dear Friends and Allies, 

 
The climate crisis has already begun to wreak havoc:

Increasing temperatures, melting ice caps, and rising seas, stronger, more destructive storms, increasing flooding, drought, famine, and disease, damage to infrastructure, farmland, and crops, displacement of millions of people, and rapid changes that may threaten human civilization on Earth.

 Youth activist Greta Thunberg has called the world to action, with a mass mobilization of youth demanding governments act now. Connecticut youth leaders are responding. This coming September, another global week of action is planned, with events worldwide — and across Connecticut — September 20-27.
  
The CT Climate Crisis Mobilization (C3M) is bringing together a diverse coalition of individuals and groups to plan actions that call attention to the climate crisis, including a call for environmental justice, social and racial justice, economic and immigration justice, as these are all connected with our fight to maintain a livable Earth. The CT Climate Strike on September 20 begins a week of action in every city and town, every school, every workplace, every house of worship. 
 
Will you be part of the Connecticut Climate Crisis Mobilization? 
 
We need big societal change, not business as usual. We need changes to individual patterns of behavior and entrenched policies. To change everything, we need everyone, not only environmental activists. If you and your organization or business can participate on Friday, September 20 and/or can plan a local action, please reply to [email protected]. We will add your name to the participant list and follow up with planning information. We look forward to adding your event to the statewide list and/or look to see your members on the State Capitol steps, overlooking Bushnell Park, at 12 p.m. on Friday, September 20.
 
In Solidarity,  CT Climate Crisis Mobilization (C3M)
