March with us in the Bay Area and in New York! Next week, the United Nations Climate Summit will convene world leaders to discuss solutions to climate change. While we are all ready for bold action to address our current climate crisis, the most important voices in this discussion, those of indigenous, low-income, and people of color at the frontlines of climate pollution, must be the loudest. That is why we are joining the action in both New York AND the Bay Area.
There are two opportunities to participate with us in the Bay Area:
1) Saturday, September 20th: APEN, National Alliance for Filipino Concerns (NAFCON), and the International Coalition for Human Rights in the Philippines are co-sponsoring “From Relief to Releaf,” an educational forum on climate disruption in the Philippines, its causes, and its impacts.

SEIU Local 1021 Union Hall, Conference Room B, Kansas St. near corner of 17th Street, San Francisco, CA
2) Sunday, September 21st: APEN will join the largest worldwide climate mobilization in history at the Northern California People’s Climate Rally. In solidarity with the People’s Climate March in NYC, we will demand that world leaders implement community-led solutions.
