National Mall - Washington DC
During the first 100 days of the Trump presidency, the People’s Climate Movement is calling for hundreds of actions around the country. In every corner of the nation, we will be in the offices, meetings rooms, and the halls of power to fight back. A presidential permit was just issued to restart the dangerous Keystone XL pipeline, against all evidence that its construction would set off a "carbon bomb" for our planet and its people.
We will not allow climate deniers to threaten the planet, and we will not allow attacks on immigrants, communities of color, women, LGBTQ and workers to become the new normal. On April 29, we will march for the climate in Washington DC and in Michigan.
