It's on! The biggest march and mobilization against climate crisis is about to make history. With hundreds of coordinated actions taking place around the world, the massive People's Climate March will flood the streets of New York in a peaceful protest committed to principles of environmental justice and equality.
As more than 10,000 protesters ready to take to the streets together with more than 1,400 businesses, unions, faith groups and environmental groups, march is set to kick off at 11:30 on Sunday.
Because this is a "movement of movements," there are several different bodies convening to collaborate on the march and the events leading up to the historic day. Be a part of the change and take action against climate change by attending one of the many events. It's time to hold those responsible and become the forefront of change. Here is a breakdown of events:
The UN and world leaders have been debating what to do about climate change for two decades – and gotten nowhere. Their solutions have only gotten fuzzier as the science and impact of climate change have become clearer.
Many New Yorkers know that fracking has serious consequences for our health and our environment. But few New Yorkers realize that, although horizontal drilling is not happening in New York, we are already being fracked—by pipelines, compressor stations, storage caverns and waste dumping.
Flood, blockade, sit-in and shut down the financial and political centers around the world who are profiting from the climate crisis. And remember to wear BLUE.
