Community members come together

Community Members from all walks of life call on presidential candidates and congress to create jobs and end global warming by investing in a renewable energy economy

From 11 a.m. to noon Sept. 27, community members will rally outside UCSD’s Gilman parking structure, which features solar panels to generate renewable energy, to highlight the campus’ commitment to sustainable energy and reducing global warming pollution and call on leaders to invest in solutions that will fight global warming and create green jobs.

UCSD’s local efforts are symbolic of a larger, national demand for a renewable energy economy. The event is one of hundreds being held across the country on the same day, bringing together a diverse coalition of labor, environmental, faith-based , civil rights, and many other groups. The actions will demonstrate to the next president, congress and the nation we are ready to build an inclusive green economy, strong enough to lift people out of poverty and stop global warming.

A rally and photo opportunity to show presidential candidates and congress that San Diego is ready for a renewable energy economy will be held. Attendees will take action by making calls to Rep. Brian Bilbray and his challenger Nick Leibham to let them know North County voters want green jobs now.

The event will take place at the Gilman Parking Structure (UCSD campus). Intersection of Gilman Drive and Villa La Jolla Drive, on the north side of Gilman Drive.

From 5 North: take the La Jolla Village Drive exit west to Villa La Jolla Drive and head south on Villa La Jolla Drive until you hit Gilman Drive. From 5 South, take the Gilman Drive exit and drive north.

Participants will include North County and San Diego community members, UCSD student community and Greenpeace.
