On Saturday, April 29, East Bay DSA will be organizing at the People's Climate Movement festival at Lake Merritt from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. This event is to defend the environment, advocate for our communities, reject Trump's agenda, and work for a just, sustainable future. It will be family-friendly and feature local community members, climate activists, music and spoken word, information and engagement booths, and hands-on activities for all ages. It will begin around the Lake Merritt Amphitheater adjacent to 12th Street near Lake Merritt BART and culminate in a procession around the lake in the late afternoon.
Endorsers include a wide range of front-line environmental, labor, peace, advocacy, and community organizations. It is in support of a day of national and international mobilization for justice, jobs, peace, and the planet. The event will also feature preparations for an environmental justice contingent to participate in the May Day march and rally the following Monday.
East Bay DSA volunteers are needed to distribute literature, recruit, and speak with the public. We will be telling attendees about our campaign for universal, single payer health care in California and all of DSA's educational and political activities. We will also be helping provide children's activities and childcare at the event.
To get involved, contact ExComm member Susan Chacin at firstname.lastname@example.org or (510) 332-8569.
