Climate Justice Rally: Follow Through on the Ithaca Green New Deal

Start: Friday, March 25, 2022 4:30 PM

End: Friday, March 25, 2022 5:30 PM

On March 25th, Sunrise Ithaca will participate in a Global Climate Strike demanding that people be placed above profits. As members of a city that pledged to address socioeconomic inequities, we have a particular stake in the matter. In 2019, Ithaca's Green New Deal made a commitment to "ensure benefits are shared among all local communities to reduce historical, social, and economic inequities". Three years after its passage, we have yet to see concrete actions to deliver on this promise. Join us on March 25th to stand in solidarity with the rest of the world and ask our local government how they are addressing the social justice component of the Ithaca Green New Deal.
