Join Colleagues in a History-Making March in New York City on September 21

Coordinated action worldwide draws attention to climate change

From Connecticut to California, we've all been experiencing the effects of what many experts are calling a climate crisis—from the historic brush fires out west to the flooding across the entire country to the coldest summer on record—and the list goes on.

With our future on the line, now is the time to take action.

Join CEA September 21 in New York City, for the People's Climate March for Change. The march is one of hundreds of coordinated actions taking place that day around the world to draw attention to demand action on climate change.

The march is expected to draw hundreds of thousands of people to New York before the landmark U.N. summit, where world leaders, including President Obama, will be discussing the climate crisis and what must be done to protect our future.

The CEA Board of Directors voted to join other unions in support of the People's Climate March and is calling on Connecticut teachers to join in support by marching on September 21. More than 750 businesses, unions, religious organizations, schools, social justice and environmental groups are all working together and taking a stand to bend the course of history.

Don't be left out of this historic event. Mobilize, march, and make history by joining your colleagues from across Connecticut and the country.
