People's Climate March - Delaware Buses

People's Climate March - Delaware Buses

On April 29th in Washington, DC we'll show the new administration and Congress that we won't let them pollute our air and wreck the climate on our watch!

There is no denying it: Donald Trump’s election is a threat to the future of our planet, the safety of our communities, and the health of our families. If the policies he proposed on the campaign trail are implemented, they will destroy our climate, decimate our livelihoods, and undermine our hard-won civil rights. It’s up to us to stop that from happening--and luckily we have people on our side. Please join us and invite your friends to what we expect to be the largest climate rally ever!

Bus tickets will be $35/person, which will include gratuity, tolls and all bus fees. If you can, please consider donating the cost of an extra bus ticket for someone who can't afford it (or donate any amount toward the "scholarship fund"). If you want to attend the march, but the bus is cost-prohibitive, please contact Stephanie.Herron@sierraclub.org about sponsored tickets. Kids are welcome on the buses and at the march as long as they are accompanied by a responsible adult.

*A few specific details are still in the process of being worked out, but we have four buses reserved. We're currently thinking we'll have two buses pick up in Newark from Trabant and two from Wilmington (probably right off 202). We'd love to add additional buses if demand requires it (and if we can find them), but we can't guarantee the $35 ticket past the first four buses if/when those four sell out (it's peak season for bus companies). Check your preferred pick up location when you buy your ticket.

Indigenous Flood - United Nations : NYC - Come to New York
Apr
24
to May 5

Indigenous Flood - United Nations : NYC - Come to New York

The Flood never came to Standing Rock, so let's bring the Flood to the United Nations. 

From April 24th to May 5th the United Nations in New York City is holding the Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues, also known as PFII. Typically, these forums lack Native American representation, and often have Non-Natives speaking on behalf of Natives and their issues. This ends now. 

For two weeks, we need to show New York, The UN, and the world that Indigenous People are here, and can speak for themselves. 

The world will not forget what happened at Standing Rock. The world will no longer ignore the conditions on reservations, and the issues effecting indigenous people around the globe. 3/4 of the world's population are indigenous, and it's time they stop forgetting that. 

There are multiple levels of events within this forum, some more exclusive than others. We want to come out in full force at every level. From top to bottom. From panels at the UN headquarters to flash mob round dances in Time Square, we are going to Flood New York City. 

Whether you are registered for the forum or not, we are asking for all indigenous people and allies to come to New York City and show your support. As the strongest of warriors take the United Nations to speak, they will have the support of their brothers and sisters outside, praying, singing, marching and standing in solidarity. 

Thousands came to Standing Rock. Thousands came to DC. And we can do the same in New York City. 

We are planning a plethora of events, from demonstrations, to speaking engagements, to gatherings and dances and celebrations. For two weeks, let's make New York City our new home. 

More details to come as this develops and grows. 

If you would like to register your own group for the United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues (PFII) in New York City. http://bit.ly/PFIIRegistration
