In California, the face of climate change is fire. So many of us were impacted by the Northern and Southern California wildfires. Now, we’re holding a rally to make the N95 Particulate Respirator Mask into a powerful symbol of climate change. The mask is uncomfortable, it changes the wearer’s face, and more than anything it means that the air surrounding the wearer is no longer safe to breathe.
The megafires California is facing are the result of climate change. Shorter, wetter winters and hotter, drier summers turn formerly healthy forests into kindling. We need to look this problem in the eye and talk about what it means to maintain healthy forests in the face of an unpredictable climate.
Join San Francisco’s first fully masked rally, in Japan Town’s Peace Plaza. Dance, learn from climate scientists, listen to the words of poets, make yourself heard, and wear your mask!
Masks will be provided at the event.
Saturday, May 19, 1 – 3 PM
Japantown Peace Plaza
1610 Geary Blvd, San Francisco
