Please join 350NYC, 350BK and 350NJ and allied faith, labor and student groups in “Protect What You Love/Climate Justice Now” at the Statue of Liberty on Saturday, December 12, to send a message to world leaders that we stand together to protect all we hold dear from the threat of catastrophic climate change. As the embodiment of our freedom and liberty, a gift from France as an expression of solidarity with our democratic values, a safe harbor for refugees, and a symbol of hope for people seeking a better life. Like the rest of us, Lady Liberty is vulnerable to rising seas and accelerating winds. All of this makes the Statue of Liberty an ideal backdrop for this urgent message on climate..
We will hold a press conference at 1:30 pm in Battery Park, where we will have an opportunity to spell out the consequences of climate change and to articulate our responses to the COP21 talks.
