People’s Climate March

This Sunday JCPA and COEJL joined the over one hundred Jewish organizations and 400,000 other citizens at the People’s Climate March in NYC. This march, widely described as the “largest and most diverse” demonstration of its kind, called for coordinated international action to stem climate change. We were heartened by the strong Jewish voice advocating and demonstrating on behalf of this important issue. Shofars were blown and prayers and speeches were given in the hours leading up to the march.  JCPA President Steve Gutow joined Jared Feldman (VP and Washington Director), Rabbi Fred Dobb (COEJL Chair), Andi Millens (VP), Geri Palast (Managing Director of the Israel Action Network), Jared Bierbach (COEJL Policy Associate), and Sybil Sanchez (COEJL Development Director) as part of the JCPA contingent at the march. The rally comes at an opportune time as 120 world leaders, including President Barack Obama, convene at the United Nations in New York to discuss carbon pollution.  In what the NY Times is calling “A clarion call to action” we hope this march is the catalyst for a new global consensus on climate change.
