The concept is to create a public demonstration to awaken to and connect the dots between Climate, Jobs, and Justice. Like history's Paul Revere, we awaken our neighbors and press our leaders to action. We are woke to the reality our situation and our need to change the dream of fossil fuel economy, financial inequity and stinging injustices. We rise to ring in a new dream: sustainability in climate, wages, health, housing, energy, social justice, and beauty for all - no exceptions!
Meditation, Rally, Demonstration, Speakers, Music, Poets, Connecting - This day is an exercise in support, action, connection and readiness. We hope that you will find like minded people and organizations to partner with to support the important work to be done for Jobs & Justice, carrying this movement into November and beyond.
Shoulder to shoulder, connecting hearts, indivisable, we rise; reestablishing values of liberty and justice for all; reclaiming the future; showing our elected leaders the way, demanding they act for us, for the wellbeing of the future of our and our children's home - the Planet.
"We need a kind of collective awakening. There are among us men and women
who are awakened, but it’s not enough; the masses are still sleeping.
They cannot hear the ringing of the bells... We have to hear the bells of mindfulness that are sounding all across our planet... Whether we can wake up or not depends on whether we can walk mindullly on our Mother Earth. The future of all life, including our own, depends on our mindful steps." ~Thich Nhat Hahn
So through the night rode Paul Revere; And so through the night went his cry of alarm To every Middlesex village and farm,-- A cry of defiance, and not of fear, A voice in the darkness, a knock at the door, And a word that shall echo forevermore! ~ Henry Wadsorth Longfellow
