Boston RISE for Climate, Jobs, Immigrant Rights, & Justice
September 8, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm
On Sept. 8, a coalition of over 35 faith, labor, racial justice, immigrant rights, youth, climate action, and environmental justice groups are coming together in East Boston to accomplish two goals:
1) Halt the proposed Eversource electric substation that threatens the community. This project must be reevaluated and offer a more inclusive process for community input, including adequate language translation.
2) Join forces across movements to build long-term collective power for Climate, Jobs, Immigrant Rights, and Justice in MA. We demand: 100% Clean and Renewable Future; Economic Opportunity for Everyone; Prioritizing a Just Resilience, Relief and Recovery; Union Wages that Support a Family; Pollution-Free Communities and Workplaces; Protection of Workers; Dignity, Respect, & Permanent Protection for all Immigrants.
To change everything it takes everyone. On Sept. 8, as governors, mayors, and corporate reps meet at the Global Climate Action Summit in CA—and as our own Governor & Legislature in MA continue to accept money from the fossil fuel industry and then fail to enact common sense climate and immigration reforms, we’ll prove that real climate leadership rises from the grassroots up and doesn’t leave anyone behind.
