People’s Climate March

April 29 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

Join the People’s Climate March on April 29, 2017, from 9-4 in Washington DC, to stand up for our communities and climate.

Throughout the first 100 days in office, the People’s Climate Movement, a project of dozens of organizations working together to solve the climate crisis, is organizing a country-wide arc of action, culminating on April 29th in Washington DC in a powerful mobilization to unite all of our movements.

A steering committee of more than two dozen organizations is organizing the event. It is supported by the major national environmental groups and an array of social justice, religious, and labor groups, ranging from the Hip Hop Caucus to the Franciscan Action Network to the BlueGreen Alliance. More than 100 groups have endorsed the march – to change everything, we need everyone!
