PEOPLE’S CLIMATE MARCH FOR JOBS AND JUSTICE
WASHINGTON, D.C., APRIL 29, 2017
WE RESIST, WE BUILD, WE RISE
New Yorkers understand the vital role of street activism. They know how to build movements for the long haul in their communities and beyond.
On Sept 21, 2014, nearly a half MILLION people, led by environmental justice youth and activists in the South Bronx, showed their determination to tackle climate change and demand action by their leaders at the People’s Climate March in New York City.
On April 29, 2017, you are needed again: this time, in the streets of Washington D.C. for the People’s Climate March for Jobs and Justice, being organized by a massive coalition of national and community groups under the banner of the People’s Climate Movement (PCM). The PCM is made up of many of the folks who organized the People’s Climate Marches in NYC and globally in 2014. You can find a list of People’s Climate Movement Steering Co. members HERE and a list of organizations endorsing the April 29 (A29) march (including BCJN) HERE.
There will be NO sister march in NYC or in other cities close to the Capitol. Massive numbers are needed in D.C. We need to show the Trump administration that traveling a few hundred miles is nothing compared to what they are doing to the environment and our children’s future.
However, if you are not on the East Coast within travel distance of Washington, you can find A29 (April 29) sister marches being organized elsewhere in the country by going HERE.
Throughout the first 100 days of the Trump administration, the People’s Climate Movement 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. To change everything, we need everyone.
On April 29th, we will march for our families, for our air, water, and land. We will march for clean energy jobs and climate justice. We will march for our communities and the people we love. We will march for people on the front lines of climate change, who are being hit first and worst by climate disaster.
All together, in Washington D.C., we will rise as a global community.
Please reach out beyond activist circles, to people in schools, unions, faith communities, and more, and encourage them to join this massive day of peaceful action.
