350.org is thrilled to announce that Senator Jeff Merkley (D-OR), the Executive Director of North Bay Jobs with Justice, Mara Ventura, and other just recovery organizers on the ground will be joining the call. We'll discuss how workers' rights and the fight for racial justice connect with climate justice and learn about 350.org principles for a just recovery!

In the wake of multiple pandemics (COVID-19, systemic racism, economic inequality and climate catastrophe), we must come together to demand a just recovery! One that leads to a just transition from fossil fuels and towards real change!

RSVP now at (http://act.350.org/go/205524) to join one or more of the following Solidarity School mass calls to get active in the fight for a just recovery:

- TODAY at 8 pm ET: Our Fight for a Just Recovery: Workers' Rights, Racial Justice, COVID & Climate

- September 9th at 8 pm ET: Defund, Abolish & Divest: Climate, Racial & Economic Justice

- October 7th at 8 pm ET: Protecting Votes & Building Power: Climate Justice & the Election

A group of faculty published an analysis of UCSD's finances in the context of the current pandemic and potential cuts.

The data they collect paints a very concerning picture about the changing nature of the institution.

Great article in the Guardian today on Extinction Rebellion UK, from the start until now.

You are all heroes for trying so hard.

Your world-changing struggle, your difficulties, conflict and adaptation teach us. Thank you.

“Tenured faculty at UC are well paid with good benefits. It's one of the last good jobs. What counts though is what they do with the opportunity, and most remain in business-as-usual mode”. @johnforan at UCSB

Nice!

Wake up Profs and start teaching & researching climate crisis.

Just as San Diego gears up for record-breaking heat this weekend, Carbon Brief releases information that 2020 will be the first or second hottest year ever recorded.
We must redouble our efforts to drive grassroots collective action.
