The People’s Climate March is kicking off this weekend on Saturday, April 29 in Washington, D.C. More than 12,000 people have said they are going on the Facebook event page.
The event is another in the series of D.C. marches that have been planned in response to the current administration. This one is scheduled on President Donald Trump’s 100th day in office. The point of the march is to bring to light issues surrounding climate change, climate justice and labor. It is a part of a week of action in the city that kicked off with the April 22 March for Science and will end with a May Day action on May 1.
However, not everyone can make it to Washington, D.C. on Saturday. That’s why organizers have been sure to encourage folks to organize their own sister marches around the country—and world.
