Brothers and Sisters,

On Friday, June 28, through Sunday, June, 30, 2019, Labor Network for Sustainability will convene its third National Labor Convergence on Climate in Chicago. The major goal of the LNS National Convergence is to produce an action agenda for labor around climate change and to draft a strategy for organizing around that agenda. It is an opportunity to learn, share and help strengthen labor’s voice in the movement to build a just equitable and sustainable environment and economy. We will also invite allies in the climate protection movement who are partnering with the labor movement for good jobs and healthy communities.

SUBMIT YOUR FORM TODAY, SPACE IS LIMITED

This year we will share examples where labor is engaged in climate protection efforts including campaigns for renewable energy, public transit, successful labor/community transitions from fossil fuels to clean energy, the Green New Deal and more...

We are seeking nominations for invitees who:

  • Want to engage the labor movement in climate protection steps that (a) achieve the targets for
    greenhouse gas emissions that are required by climate science and (b) provide a just transition for
    impacted workers.
  • Are active in trade unions, worker centers, and worker organizing as rank-and-file members,
    leaders, or staff.
  • Are active in climate protection activities within and beyond their union.
  • Will help connect the Convergence with diverse racial, ethnic, gender, regional, age, occupational,
    organizational, and other constituencies.

You can nominate up to five individuals; one form per nominee.
