I was part of the worldwide climate action day on September 8. More than 900 related events worldwide took place on that day to Rise for Climate Jobs and Justice.
The People’s Climate Movement was attempting to link workers, unions, environmental and climate groups. Chicago’s Climate Table, made up of the many groups in the region that are fighting climate change, chose Elwood, Illinois for its action.
The group of some 200 or so people there was a bit smaller than we’d hoped for, but full of energy and diverse. Click here: 2018RiseForClimate for a look at how I saw the day and an explanation of why that date was chosen and why we went to Elwood.
