On April 29, We March for the Future

Bill McKibben The Nation
We'll either save or doom the planet during the Trump administration. Don't sit the Peoples Climate Mobilization out. Trump is either the end of the fight for a working planet Earth - or the moment when that fight turns truly serious. That choice is not up to him. It's up to the rest of us. See you in DC.

Why Scientists Are Marching on Washington and More Than 400 Other Cities; March for Science & Peoples Climate March are Inherently Connected

Joel Achenbach, Ben Guarino, Sarah Kaplan; 350.org Chicago Tribune
The Science March is about respecting science, the Peoples Climate March is about acting on it. One march is about listening to science, the other is about acting on it. Today's march, taking place on Earth Day, will march in defense of truth and scientific fact. Next week the Peoples Climate March will put forward a vision to build bold solutions that tackle climate change, create and retain fair jobs, and bring forth justice truly for all.

Why Riverside Church Supports the April 29 March on Washington for Climate, Jobs & Justice

Rev. Dr. Amy Butler, Senior Minister, The Riverside Church Portside
Anybody who is paying attention should be worried about the very real threat of climate change, but action on critical environmental issues is often set aside because of perceived immediate crisis: war breaking out on the international stage, racial injustice and inequality decimating our streets at home, threats of mass deportation, a growing healthcare crisis. With all of these vying for our attention, attending to the earth hardly seems high on the priority list.

March for Climate, Jobs, and Justice - April 29 - Washington, DC

People's Climate Movement
Everything we have struggled to move forward in the United States is in peril. Our loved ones feel under siege, and those in power in Washington are advancing a dark and dangerous vision of America that we know is untrue. To change everything, we need everyone. First we resist. Then we build. Together, we rise.

Why the Climate Movement Must Stand with Ferguson

Deirdre Smith, Strategic Partnership Coordinator 350.org
It was not hard for me to make the connection between the tragedy in Ferguson, Missouri, and the catalyst for my work to stop the climate crisis. To me, the connection between militarized state violence, racism, and climate change was common-sense and intuitive. We're all impacted by climate change, but we're not all impacted equally. It isn't incidental, it's institutional, and it's rooted in history.
