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.

Ruffalo and DiCaprio joined thousands on Sunday, including actors Kevin Bacon and his wife Kyra Sedgwick, who have been live-tweeting the march.
