      Ways you can support our housing and displacement contingent

      -There will be eleven tents carried by communities that have been displaced as a result of climate change. Volunteer to carry a tent!
      -Bring a bullhorn if you have one
      -Tweet during the march at:

      #peoplesclimate

      #ittakesroots

      #rebuildajustnyc

      The march will be led by frontline communities most directly impacted by the devastation of climate change. Our housing and displacement contingent is representing the links between climate change and displacement and gentrification and calling for affordable, sustainable housing that is built without a dependency on fossil fuels. In the frontline communities contingent alone, there will be 18,000 people and organizers estimate 100,000 people in total will be at the march.

      At 12:58, there will be a moment of silence, to hold up and recognize the trauma from climate change that has impacted low income communities of color across the world. At 1pm, we will sound an alarm to mark the urgency of us building a collective response to climate change and transforming our economic system to support people and the environment.

      The march will end with a massive block party including political theater, music, and workshops and food!

      We look forward to sharing this moment together!

    • Join the Shalom Bayit: Justice for Domestic Workers Campaign for the Eldercare Dialogue Series.

We also uncover our shared values and aspirations for what elder care and elder care work should be, discuss strategies to address those challenges and lift up our values (e.g. quality jobs and quality care), and develop our base of workers, consumers, and families prepared and committed to participate in pilot worker and consumer training programs. In partnership with Domestic Workers United, Adhikaar, Damayan, the National Domestic Workers Alliance, Central Synagogue, and B'nai Jeshurun's Aging in New York Hevra.
