People’s Climate March

What:  taken from the Climate March website:

At the end of April, Donald Trump will have been in office for 100 days. We need to mark that day with a massive demonstration that shows that our resistance is not going to wane or fade away.

So far, our resistance has been beautiful — and it’s beautiful because at its heart is a vision of a future that inspires us and gives us hope. It’s a vision that protects our families, our communities, and our climate. Most importantly, it’s a vision that we are building together.

Since inauguration, we’ve seen what people power can achieve: Trumpcare? Withdrawn. Muslim ban? Blocked. Now Trump’s entire fossil fuel agenda is next. Join us on April 29th. Click here to RSVP for the march.

Where: Gather in front of the Capitol Building at 3rd and Jefferson SW at 11am, and start marching at 12:30
