The planet is reaching its boiling point and so are we. Climate change is real, is caused by human activity and our window of opportunity to fix the problem is literally now or never.
The People's Climate March is a collective step—or steps, so to speak—in the right direction. In 2014 in New York City, the People's Climate Movement created the first march on the heels of the UN Climate Summit. While global leaders strategized on how to deal with the environmental crisis, the masses took to the streets to have their voices heard.
The march has made history year after year, showing the power of collective organizing to make meaningful change. The People's Climate Movement has made it their top priority to have leadership that reflects communities that have been hit hardest by climate change. Their work is intersectional and highlights how climate change disproportionately affects communities of color, low-income families, and workers.
With a climate change denier in the Oval Office, we are obligated to take action. On April 29th, in Washington D.C. and across the country, hundreds of thousands will gather to demand environmental justice.
Sign up to join the march today and let's do this together.
UPDATE: On April 29, over_ 200,000 students, workers, organizations, and environmental groups gathered in Washington D.C. to join the fight in ensuring we work towards a clean energy economy that works for everyone. _Tens of thousands more joined in over 370 sister marches across the country and the world. But the fight isn't over.
"Today's actions are not for one day or one week or one year," said Paul Getsos, National Coordinator for the People's Climate Movement, in a statement on the day of the march. "We are a movement that is getting stronger everyday for our families, our communities and our planet. To change everything, we need everyone."
