The Global Climate Convergence is sponsoring a workshop at the Left Forum exploring the upcoming Climate Strike. It will take place during Session 3 from 3:15 – 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, May 31 at 540 West 59 Street.
A People’s Climate Strike: Transformative Justice Through Collaborative Strike Action
The workshop A People’s Climate Strike: Transformative Justice through Collaborative Strike Action will focus on addressing and combating the economic, political and cultural inequalities that are the root causes of the climate crisis through the revolutionary action of a collaborative strike. Topics will include building a foundation for strike action through the U.S. Social Forum Climate Strike People’s Movement Assembly, diversifying outreach, and redefining the current understanding of collaborative strike action to create a broader base of participation and support. We will be exploring possible outcomes of the first wave of strike action leading up to the opening of the COP21 Climate Change Conference in Paris on November 30, as well as organizing into 2016 and beyond.
