Youth Climate March
Mar 15 @ 9:00 am – 2:00 pm

Join SanDiego350 as we turn out to support the leadership of young climate activists at Hilltop High School in Chula Vista who are striking for the Green New Deal and other necessary actions to solve the climate crisis, as part of a global day of action for youth. 

The students will leave school about 9:00 am to walk to Chula Vista City Hall where they will hold a program from about 10:00 am to 2 pm. If you can only come for part we recommend either the walk from school at 9:00, or the main part of the program which will take place from 12-1 pm. 

Note: students are leading this event. Parents and supporters and students from other schools are welcome to participate. We'll have signs and banners, and feel free to bring your own too. 

Where:
Hilltop High School, 555 Claire Ave, Chula Vista, CA 91910 at 9 am
Chula Vista City Hall, 276 4th Ave, Chula Vista, CA 91910, from 10 am – 2 pm

Rep. Susan Davis: Cosponsor the Green New Deal!
Mar 19 @ 9:00 am – 12:00 pm

Join SanDiego350 to call on Rep. Susan Davis (CA-53) to cosponsor the Green New Deal resolution in Congress, and commit to a just and equitable transition to a world free from fossil fuels, support green jobs, and reject fossil fuel money.

Over 40 of us turned up at Susan Davis' office in February to deliver petition signatures asking her to lead on climate change and support the Green New Deal. That was before the resolution was introduced. Since then we've asked her to join Reps. Levin and Vargas in cosponsoring the bill, but she has not done so. 

Now it's time to turn up the pressure and make sure it's clear that her not leading on climate change is not acceptable, and that we need her to step up. 

We will have signs. Please wear your SanDiego350 t-shirt. We'll meet at the eastern side of Trolley Barn park (Adams Ave between Alabama and Florida), review the event details, and then walk to the office.
