TOMORROW: People’s Climate March

Tomorrow, history will be made. Will you be there? March with us!

It’s official. Scientists have confirmed it, people have perished from it, and industries have capitalized on it. Climate change is not only real, but is now acknowledged as a threat to our species. Why else would the most prominent world leaders come to NYC this week to attend the UN’s meeting regarding the current state of our climate?

But radical change takes more than action from those already in power; their opinions are forceful and their stances on the matter influential. However if “the people” are truly victims of climate change, then it is “the people” who need to show their concern – collectively. On Sunday one of the most crucial public demonstrations to take place in my generation will occur in NYC in conjunction with the UN meeting on the climate crisis. Called the People’s Climate March, it will make history for both its peaceful intentions and subject matter. Thousands will March from West 86th street down to 34th, accompanied by partnering marches worldwide, to express their fear for the current state of our world, confirm truths about what the causes are, and plea – no, demand – change, NOW.

The event takes off at 11:30 a.m. I will certainly be in attendance as I hope you will be, too. You can get as involved as you want – volunteer to run the event even – or simply be present and march, adding one more voice to the real majority. It’s a day of justice, and could profoundly shape our immediate future.

 With such an unpredictable and unstable future ahead of us, we have to act now – please join me on Sunday!
