In September, heads of state are going to New York City for a historic UN summit on climate change. There will be an unprecedented climate mobilization and our demand is a world we know is within our reach: a world with an economy that works for people and the planet. In short, a world safe from the ravages of climate change.
Hudson River Sloop Clearwater is participating in this event as the whole world looks to this gathering and we all unite to stand up in our communities, to organize, to build power, to confront the power of fossil fuels, and to shift power to a just, safe, peaceful world.
