They have reserved a late model relatively low emissions Roadrunner Charter Bus out of Camarillo that will stop at the Unitarian-Universalist Church of Ventura at 11:30 pm next Friday, September 7, then pick up riders in Santa Barbara and Isla Vista and head north for an early morning drop-off at the Embarcadero in San Francisco.
Experienced march organizers (who did this in NYC and DC) plan a smooth pick-up. You will know where to show up at the time specified by your bus captain Amber Bassett (sometime between 3 and 5 pm) for the ride back home. You’ll get back to the UU Church around midnight. Your car is safe in the back parking lot for the day.
Pack your food and drink, including items you can leave on the bus–a pillow or two, blanket, hoodie, warm socks, maybe earplugs if you need to withdraw from the vibrant, soul-filled conversation of other riders. Pack whatever helps make the ride home more comfortable that you can feel OK leaving with your bus driver for the day. There is plenty of room for walkers and wheelchairs and strollers.
There will San Fran food trucks at the Embarcadero bus drop-off point and at the end of the march at the Civic Center where a Resource Fair of partner organizations, campaigns, and projects will showcase the work that they do, how they educate people about climate change and just transition, and where people can get involved in art, technology and economic structures for humanity’s regeneration.
The march needs us. The moment needs us to step out and shout for climate justice and a fair transition to a safe world.
Thousands have been learning songs from The Peace Poets up and down the coast during the past three weeks. Be with them singing. The people gonna rise like the water, We’re gonna calm this crisis down. I hear the voice of my great grand-daughter singing ‘Keep It In the Ground’.
