Northern Climate Network will lead a local People's Climate Change March and festival on Saturday April 29. Meet at the Marquette City Commons at 9:45AM. We march at 10:00 sharp! The 1.4 mile march will start along the Iron Ore Heritage Trail, then at 7th Street we will meet a police escort and march on Washington Street. This goal is to walk as a community demonstrating local support for more ambitious global climate change policy and to celebrate what is being done locally. The walk will end at the Commons, with informational booths, food and music. The walk and festival will take place rain or shine, so please come prepared.

If you are interested in hosting an educational or informational booth at the Commons please e-mail climate@nmu.edu. A $10 suggested donation would help to cover the cost of renting the Commons area for the day. There will be a keynote speaker at noon, followed by an open-mic opportunity and music.

Please join in this opportunity to come together as a community to raise awareness about the devastating impacts of global climate change as well as the numerous solutions available.

Join us on April 29th at 10:00 at the Commons. Let's march together.
