New Energy Economy invite you to THE URGENCY OF NOW: The Launch for the 100% Renewables and a Just Transition Campaign in Observance of the National People’s Climate March Call to Action.
On Saturday millions across the globe will march and take action for the People's Climate Mobilization which was called this year for the 100th day of the Trump Presidency with the theme climate, jobs, and justice.
Having just marched for climate justice at the Science March, we wanted to bring the community together in a different way - to shape the principles and strategy of our movements work for a just energy transition in New Mexico.
“We are confronted with the fierce urgency of now. In this unfolding conundrum of life and history, there is such a thing as being too late. Procrastination is still the thief of time. Life often leaves us standing bare, naked, and dejected with a lost opportunity. The tide in the affairs of men does not remain at flood — it ebbs. We may cry out desperately for time to pause in her passage, but time is adamant to every plea and rushes on. Over the bleached bones and jumbled residues of numerous civilizations are written the pathetic words, “Too late.” There is an invisible book of life that faithfully records our vigilance or our neglect…These are the times for real choices and not false ones. We are at the moment when our lives must be placed on the line if our nation is to survive its own folly. Every man of humane convictions must decide on the protest that best suits his convictions, but we must all protest….” - Dr. Martin Luther King from his speech Beyond Vietnam (You can listen here: http://www.commondreams.org/views04/0115-13.htm)
We urge you to join us and movement leaders from throughout the state in an exploration of the important issues and guiding principles at the heart of the opportunity and responsibility we face: to steward a just and 100% renewable transition for New Mexico. After a moving and thought-provoking panel, we'll roll up our sleeves and begin building the 100% renewables campaign TOGETHER, including our creative arsenal.
