People's Climate March NYC
The People’s Climate March in New York City on Sunday, Sept. 21, was organized as a message to the United Nations summit on climate change, scheduled to take place on Tuesday in New York City.
“We are demanding the world we know is within our reach: a world with an economy that works for people and the planet; a world safe from the ravages of climate change; a world with good jobs, clean air and water, and healthy communities,” reads the official march website.
