San Diego climate activists will host a COVID-safe beach cleanup and an “oil spill” art installation at Mission Beach on Saturday, followed by a virtual rally calling on local and federal leaders to “Build Back Fossil-Free.”
Organizers say they intend to hold President Joe Biden accountable for campaign promises and urge him to prioritize climate justice, renewable energy, and sustainable transit infrastructure.
Part of a nationwide week of action, the events start at 9 a.m. with a beach cleanup near the parking lot at 3021 Mission Blvd. The art installation is planned for the same location.
Information about how to attend the online rally, which starts at 1 p.m., can be found at sandiego350.org.
