On September 21, as world leaders gather at the U.N. Headquarters in New York City for a summit called by U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon to address global climate change issues, thousands of people from across the world will gather peacefully for a historic People’s Climate March, a historic march drawing international attention to the economic, social and environmental effects of climate change.
Sustainable Cherry Hill and 350Philly are co-sponsoring the South Jersey delegation to the march. Chartered busses will leave from across the region, with a bus pickup scheduled at 9 a.m. from The William G. Rohrer Center at Camden County College, in Cherry Hill. Seat reservations are required. “This is an invitation to people from across the region to show world leaders gathering in New York that we are deeply committed to warding off the biggest crisis facing human civilization yet,” says Lori Braunstein, founder of Sustainable Cherry Hill, an all-volunteer, non-profit community organization. “As we march together, we’ll send a strong message that meaningful global action can begin to save our planet before it’s too late,” she adds.
Bus meeting location: 1889 Rte. 70 E., Cherry Hill. For the complete list of bus locations and seat availability for the People’s Climate March, visit Tinyurl.com/SJClimateMarch. For more information, call 609-238-3449, email [email protected] or visit PeoplesClimate.org/march.
