All who wish to be part of the CASM Women’s March Posse, meet the CASM folks at the Fourth Street EXPO Station at 7:30 AM on January 21, and we’ll go to Pershing Square on the train together!
Protecting Mother Earth and taking care of each other are being tested in 2017. Following 2016, the second hottest year on record, our values face a critical test that is really a challenge to bring out the best in all of us! The president-elect, cabinet nominees, new U.S. Senate and House of Representatives favor climate denial and fossil fuel development. That’s why climate actions now need to be bright and bold civic activism to safeguard the climate, biodiversity and the environment in conjunction with civil and human rights. It’s the only way to build a sustainable, peaceful and just democracy.
As the planet has heated up, building local communities in California and beyond that aspire to be carbon-neutral is a sophisticated, profound political act of civic will. But sometimes we also need to be in the streets. On “Inauguration Weekend” Climate Action Santa Monica will lead a contingent of neighbors and friends to be a part of the Women’s March, Los Angeles, Saturday, 1/21/17, 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. We will rally at Pershing Square and then march to the L.A. City Hall. Be there whenever you can. CASM’s message is: “Honor Mother Earth-We are with Her!” Don’t forget your safety pins!
