5th New York City Climate Justice Youth
August 6, 2015

Several hundred young people of color convene to collectively educate, raise awareness
and join the movement for Climate Justice

What:  The 2015 New York City Climate Justice Youth Summit: This is the Summer of Our Power.

In light of President Obama’s Clean Power Plan, young people from low-income communities of color in New York City are gathering to discuss local solutions to the climate crisis. Building on conversations that have been ongoing in our communities for over 20 years, the Climate Justice Youth Summit invites young people of color to join in addressing one of the most pressing issues of our generation: climate change. At the Summit, attendees will learn about the connection between fossil fuel extraction and climate justice and how New Yorkers can come together inter-generationally, to build climate adaptable and resilient communities while also raising awareness about the collective need for climate education and climate justice.

Who: UPROSE (www.uprose.org) youth organizers: Cynthia Moices 22, Brian González 24 and Ting Ting Fu 25, as well as hundreds of young people of color will come together on August 6th at Union Theological Seminary for the 5th NYC Climate Justice Youth Summit. The focus of the Summit is to learn about the connections between climate change and social justice, as well as to talk about real solutions to the climate crisis.

When: Thursday, August 6, 2015 at 10:00 AM

Where: Union Theological Seminary 3041 Broadway, New York, NY 10027 (120th street)

Why: The devastating impact of Katrina, Sandy, as well as droughts in the West Coast and tornadoes in Brooklyn make learning about climate change a necessity.  As communities of color suffer disproportionately from the effects of climate change and shifting ecosystems, climate consciousness and remediation will be necessary to build local resistance.

Guest Speaker: Rev. Yearwood, President and CEO of the Hip Hop Caucus

Guest Artists: Performances by Richard Raw, The Machine, Legacy Women and Nene Ali.
