On the 100th day of the Trump administration, the People’s Climate Movement is organizing a march on the White House to show the people’s commitment to the environment and environmental organizations. The Climate March will be held in Washington, D.C. and will draw support from all across the 50 states. Are you planning to be a part of the movement?
The Peoples Climate March announced they will ‘literally’ surround the White House as part of its mass mobilization in Washington, DC on Saturday. Expect President Trump to feel the presence of their resistance – tens of thousands are expected to converge on Washington, DC from every state in the country. Also, 250 sister marches are also planned across the country and around the world.
The movement is set on core principles chosen at the first People’s Climate March in 2014 when they were protesting the UN Climate Summit. This time the People’s Climate March will be a direct response to the President’s climate change denials and the goal is to keep him from pulling out of the Paris Climate Agreement.
Week of Action
In order to grow support for this important cause and extend the day of action to more than just a single day, the People’s Climate Movement has organized a week of action between Earth Day and May Day. Events include teach-ins, launching the 100% Clean Energy Bill, emergency movement training, special youth and elder events, and hundreds more!
Check out the official website for more information on events.
Transportation to D.C. for the march is available from many universities and communities as well as through public transportation. There is some travel support available to help pay for transportation for those who need it. It is advised that participants use public transportation on the day of the march.
If you can’t make it to the march there are lots of sister marches happening around the world on April 29th. Find your local event here.
