Five years ago ...

RSVP for the huge march and rally to demand climate action on the anniversary of Superstorm Sandy.

Dear MoveOn member,

Nearly five years ago, Superstorm Sandy battered our city and our communities. We've come a long way in the last five years, but communities all over—including in Puerto Rico, Texas, Florida and California, to name a few—are dealing now with the impacts of weather that keeps getting more extreme.

On Saturday, October 28th, let's mark the anniversary of Superstorm Sandy by coming together to demand local, state, and federal action for rebuilding with justice and for climate action.

Join the #Sandy5 rally for climate justice on Saturday, October 28th—click here to RSVP and get all the event info. (This link will take you to the website of another organization that is coordinating the rally.)

We know that climate change makes storms like Sandy more violent and intense, and we know that fossil fuels are to blame. Disasters like Sandy will get worse as long as our elected officials keep supporting fossil fuels, and our most vulnerable communities will be the ones who suffer the most.

The people hit hardest by Sandy were some of those with the fewest resources with which to respond—just like communities affected most by Hurricanes Maria, Irma, and Harvey in recent months. On Saturday, we'll come together to show that those impacted communities are not alone—that we stand up for each other and demand that our political leaders do the same.

The march and rally on the 28th may be the biggest climate action in NYC since the People's Climate March, with over 100 participating organizations, including MoveOn. We'll meet at Cadman Plaza in Brooklyn, walk over the Brooklyn Bridge together, then rally in front of the Sandy-affected Smith Houses in Manhattan to show our strength.

RSPV today for the #Sandy5 rally for climate justice on October 28th.

Thanks for all you do.
