News & Action
As hurricanes displace thousands of people in developing countries, and corporations like Chevron continue to threaten the livelihoods of poor communities even within our own borders, Global Exchange and allies are working hard to broaden the issue of climate change beyond the science of melting glaciers and endangered species to include critical global justice issues like environmental injustice, poverty, labor discrimination, public health and corporate greed.
Through our Chevron program, our Campaign for Climate Equity, our membership in the West Coast Mobilization for Climate Justice and our work with the Energy Action Coalition, we're taking action to help build the movement for climate justice, generate "street heat" and force strong political action to prevent life-threatening climate impacts.
There are two exciting opportunities for you to take action that we want to make sure you hear about: the International Day of Climate Action on October 24th, and our Reality Tour to Copenhagen during the United Nations Conference on Climate Change this December.
International Day of Climate Action
Copenhagen: United Nations Conference on Climate Change
We're sending a delegation to Copenhagen to push for climate justice and Global Exchange Reality Tours is offering the exciting opportunity for you to join us during this historic event. You'll be able to join Global Exchange as we participate in the People's Climate Summit - Klimaforum 09 - civil society's alternative climate conference in Copenhagen, where you will room and participate with other climate activists and experts on the negotiations.
Thank you, as always, for your work on behalf of peace and justice.
