As part of a global day of action, the D.C. People’s Climate March will be held at 11 a.m. on September on the National Mall. Led by a local team from Rise for Climate, it will be one of thousands of rallies taking place worldwide to demand that local leaders commit to building a fossil-free world and totally renewable energy that works for all of us.
“Together, we can make governments, institutions and corporations divest from fossil fuel,” says Bill McKibben, a longtime environmental advocate and founding fellow of the Sanders Institute, of Burlington, Vermont, which supports the program. “Together, we can elect candidates who vow to keep carbon in the ground. Together, we can use our collective voice to move our local communities, states and nation to 100 percent renewable energy.”
The Action Network is an open platform that empowers individuals and groups to organize for progressive causes.
