What is the People's Climate March?

• The People’s Climate March is a major mobilization taking place in New York City on
September 21, two days before the UN Climate Summit, and is billed as the
largest climate  march in history.
This is a family-friendly event, with art, music, and other events.

Who is involved?
Tens of thousands of people from the faith, business, labor,
health, science, agriculture, and education communities will be there.
• Over 1000 local, national, and international organizations will participate.

What are the main messages?
• We will show the UN that people are ready for action on climate change,
are taking action within their communities, and will support any
progress made in the Climate Summit.
• Low income and communities of color are on the front lines of
the crisis— the first and most impacted by storms, floods, droughts,
as well as land grabs, water shutoffs and forced migration. They are also at
the forefront of innovative community-led solutions that ensure a
just transition off fossil fuels, like zero waste and public transit strategies,
that support an economy good for both people and the planet.
• We want action that protects the poorest and most vulnerable in our society, and
solutions that prioritize those who have born the brunt of the problems.
