Join Us for the Climate March!
Last weekend’s March for Science was a huge success, with tens of thousands of people around the world speaking up in support of science-based policies and science funding.
This Saturday, April 29th, is the People’s Climate March, with the main march in Washington, D.C. and sister marches around the globe.
If you plan to be in D.C. to speak up for climate action, we look forward to meeting you—and to marching with you—in support of polar bears, people, and the planet.
The larger the crowd, the greater the impact, and we hope you’ll join us in showing our leaders that, we, the people, support climate progress.
A few logistical details:
- We plan to meet at 10 a.m. at the James Madison Memorial Building on Independence Avenue, between 1st and 2nd streets SE. (Please note this is NOT the main Library of Congress building but the one across the street.) Look for PBI banners and representatives at the tables and benches to the left of the main building entrance. Come with signs to #saveourseaice!
- The line up will begin at 11 a.m. and the march will get underway at 12:30 p.m. It will be HOT, so be sure to bring water, wear a hat, bring food, and dress accordingly. March organizers will have water stations along the route to fill your water bottles. Stay hydrated!
- After marching down Pennsylvania Avenue, we will surround the White House, sit for 100 seconds of silence, and then stand together in collective support of action!
- From there, we will continue on to the Washington Monument for speakers, music, art, and more.
- At 5 p.m., we will head home—ready to take action in our communities and work for climate progress.
Thank you for your continued support. Together, we can change the future for polar bears—and people too!
