JOIN THE PEOPLE’S CLIMATE MOBILIZATION ON APRIL 29
On April 29, people from all over the country will come together for a powerful mobilization to fight back against Trump and Congress’ attacks on our climate, our communities, and our jobs.
A local coalition of labor unions, environmental justice groups, faith organizations, youth groups, and climate activism groups is coming together to send hundreds of people from the Boston area to the People’s Climate Mobilization on April 29 in Washington, DC. We’re joining forces because we think this could be a transformative moment for the Massachusetts climate movement. We share a powerful vision: together, we want to build a forceful, justice-centered movement that lifts up the voices and leadership of those most affected by climate change. Our work together is grounded in the Jemez Principles for Democratic Organizing.
We want to make sure EVERYONE who wants to can go to this exciting march! Sign up here to go to DC, or donate a ticket to help others attend.
Buy your ticket NOW — regular bus tickets will go up from $85 to $110 after March 24!
If you can’t go to Washington, DC, on April 29, but want to stand up for our climate, stay tuned for details on a sister action in Boston on that day.
