Rise for Climate, Jobs & Justice

On Saturday, September 8, 2018, many of us concerned with issues like global warming, alternate energy sources, pollution cleanup, rising seas, energy efficiency, climate refugees,and food supply gathered to listen to local speakers sharing their concerns.

Hridesh Singh, a Brighton High student,  gave a youth's perspective and Eric Koski, an engineer, spoke about science and policy matters. Ruth Ferguson shared about her struggle with Lyme disease and Nannett Cepero talked about how agriculture is affected by climate change. Both Brady Fergusson and Isabella Padron spoke on the effects of rising seas and climate refugees. Marjorie Cleophat focused on home energy efficiency upgrades and Ericka Jones talked about the needs for emergency preparedness for the disability community. Dorian Hall talked about pollution cleanup and affordable housing while Susan Campbell spoke about wind energy in her community.

Thanks to Rochester People's Climate Coalition and Sierra Club who organized the event.
