On Sunday September 21, you can be part of what looks likely be the biggest march for climate justice EVER.

The March will kick off Climate Week in NYC, as world leaders converge on the UN to try, once again, to craft a global response to the climate crisis. The March begins at Columbus Circle at 11:30am (groups will be assembling on Central Park West between 59th and 86th Sts) and will proceed east on 59th Street to 6th Ave, south on 6th Ave to 42nd St, and west on 42nd St to 11th Ave. You can find full details and sign up here.

Organizers 350.org is calling for this March to be the biggest, the most beautiful and the most impactful demand for a serious plan for the global environment. Don’t miss it!
