On Sunday, September 21, half a million people will converge on NYC to march peacefully to call on the UN and on our Congress for urgent action on climate change. The Peoples’ Climate March coincides with the UN Summit on Climate Change, to call on world leaders for courageous leadership and decisive action.
An end to business as usual. The next generations depend on what we do now.
