Where:  March from Embarcadero to the Civic Center, SF
When:  Sat, Sep 8

Greens have endorsed the demand for Real Climate Leadership, which

* Environmental, racial, and economic justice for all

* No new fossil fuel development and a managed decline of existing
  fossil fuel production

* A just transition to 100% renewable energy that protects workers,
  Indigenous peoples and frontline communities — both in these
  extractive industries and more broadly — and ensures
  family-sustaining jobs with the right to unionize, that are safe for
  people and the planet

* Just and equitable resiliency and recovery efforts led by the
  communities most impacted

By acting together, we can end the era of fossil fuels and save the
climate we all depend on.
