Mission Statement

Step It Up 2007 is a nationwide campaign that aims to deliver a clear and powerful message to our congressional leadership: Cut global warming pollution by 80% by 2050! The campaign will culminate on Saturday, April 14th, a national day of climate action, when Americans, representing voting districts throughout the country, will voice their support for this bold and necessary commitment by gathering together and making their voices heard in hundreds of local demonstrations.

As New Yorkers we have a unique capacity to add energy to this chorus and influence political outcomes. Therefore a number of NYC-based community groups and individuals have come together to organize Sea Of People, a free, open and participatory public event that will be truly commensurate with our great city's size, influence and creative spirit.

Description

The Sea Of People project combines the dynamics of a mass rally with the expressive power of an interactive artistic installation. Following a 12 Noon Rally in Battery Park on Saturday, April 14, thousands of participants, dressed in blue , will stretch north in two columns along the projected eastern and western 10-foot waterlines that may one day redefine lower Manhattan under the ten-foot sea level rise scenario .

The goal of the organizers is to have both lines extend one-half to one-mile north from the Battery. We estimate that a line of this length would call for 5,000 participants, and no less than 200 volunteers to help coordinate its movement and formation. Therefore the need to execute successful and broad outreach prior to the date will be of paramount importance.
