RISE March to kick off Solidarity to Solutions #Sol2Sol in San Francisco
On September 8, 2018, thousands of people converged in San Francisco, territory of the Ohlone people, for the ‘Rise for Climate, Jobs, and Justice’ march, just days before the Global Climate Action Summit, demanding a phase-out of fossil fuel extraction and a just transition to a 100% renewable energy economy.

The march was the kick off to the September 8-14 Solidarity to Solutions #Sol2Sol week, which lifts up community-led solutions, starting in places most impacted by pollution and climate change. #Sol2Sol brings together frontline communities from across the U.S., and around the world, including those facing health impacts associated with oil & gas production, those recovering from the devastation of the state’s worsening wildfires, those working to resist the expansion of fossil fuel infrastructure, and those advocating for and building solutions to the climate crisis within their communities.

In San Francisco, people took to the streets in the largest climate march the West Coast has ever seen that also included the largest ever street mural.
