Peoples Climate March

  • Capitol Building 3rd and Jefferson SW Washington D.C. (map)

Trump’s game plan has been to relentlessly attack our communities and shock us into despair.

It hasn’t worked because our people-powered movement is stronger than he is— together, the resistance stopped his attempts to overturn the Affordable Care Act and stymied his despicable Muslim ban. Together, we are going to do the same thing to his attacks on our climate, our air, and our water. 

 

MARCH SCHEDULE

Below is the schedule for the march itself. Visit our Week of Action page to see a list of other events the day of the march, including the Sunrise Water Ceremony, Labor Rally, and an After Party.

9:00am:   Arrive in Washington, DC: Buses begin arriving at RFK Stadium in Washington, DC from across the country.

11:00am: March Line-Up: We will gather in front of the Capitol Building at 3rd and Jefferson SW in contingents that spell out the values we share: justice, truth, democracy, faith and more. No matter what community you’re marching with, or where you’re coming from, there will be a spot for you. 

12:30pm: Kickoff the march: We’ll begin marching up Pennsylvania avenue towards the White House.

2:00pm:   Collective Action: We will surround the White House, and take powerful collective action to honor the lives at stake and make a loud sound demanding climate justice and good jobs that will drown out all of the climate-denying nonsense that has been coming out of this Administration.

3:00pm:   End of March Activities: We will reconvene at the Washington Monument grounds to connect and share the stories that brought us to DC. We’ll hear from the front line of the climate crisis and share solutions rooted in our own communities. There’ll be music and beautiful art from around the country that powerfully shows our local demands and visions. We’ll even assemble all our individual signs into one collective message of resistance.

5:00pm:   Head Home for Ongoing Action: We will wrap up our day together and head back to our local communities, preparing to take action on May 1st in solidarity with workers and immigrants across the country.
