March to End Fossil Fuels 9/17 in NYC

We all want fresh air to breathe. Good jobs for our families. A planet where our lands and oceans thrive.

But the more oil, gas, and coal we burn, the more toxic air we breathe; the more heatwaves, fires, and floods we face. All while wealthy fossil fuel CEOs rake in record profits from dirty practices that pollute our communities.

President Biden has the power to stop them by putting an end to the expansion of fossil fuels -- ensuring that we all have clean air and water, and better health and safety for our communities.

We deserve a world free from fossil fuels. This is our chance, and Biden's opportunity, to break free from fossil fuels and build a just and safe future.

On September 17th, CT citizens will join tens of thousands of people in New York City for the March to End Fossil Fuels, we will be calling on President Biden to stop fossil fuel expansion. The march will take place ahead of the UN Climate Ambition Summit. Marchers will leverage as much national and international pressure as possible to call on Biden to change course. This is a critical moment. Please sign up on the form provided for more detailed information & logistics. If you can't make it, there will still be many ways to participate.

Fossil fuel pollution harms our health, our families, and our lives. It’s never been more clear than this summer, with wildfires and heat waves choking us – fossil fuels are driving the climate crisis, and the impacts are getting worse and worse. In the largest climate march since the pandemic, thousands will take to the streets to demand President Biden take bold action to #EndFossilFuels

To change everything we need everyone!

We recognize this mobilization is planned for the second day of Rosh Hashanah. There were a nifumber of factors that led organizers to choose this date. Given the timing of the UN Climate Summit, Yom Kippur on the following weekend, and the need to make the march accessible for families and working people of all backgrounds on a weekend, Sunday the 17th was the date that was chosen. The lead organizers did not make this decision lightly, and we all deeply respect Jewish communities have different relationships with protest and social action during the High Holidays. We honor and affirm that many Jewish communities and organizations will be praying at this time and we celebrate their observance.
