Global Day of Action - Nov. 6, 2021
Hurricane Ida made landfall on the 16th Anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, at the height of a global pandemic and vaccine apartheid, and the continued rise of individualism, fear, and white supremacist threats to democracy. Moving from a deeply rooted position of resistance, power, and love, frontline communities in the Gulf South have come together to call on elected leaders, national allies and supporters, and the public to choose now to change how we address the climate crisis. This story is not just about recovery and the climate impacts on the US. It is about accountability and responsibility of the US government to repair and address the harms and inequitable solutions we have put on the Global South during this climate crisis.
As world leaders are gathering again for the annual Conference of Parties (COP 26) sessions to develop a global strategy that keeps temperature from rising above 1.5 degrees, #WeChooseNow to join global climate frontlines and COP 26 coalitions calling for a global day of action to demand climate justice in the UN negotiations around the climate crisis.
