People's Climate March - Columbus, OH
** In collaboration with:
PEOPLE'S CLIMATE MARCH 2017 in Washington D.C.
"WHY WE’RE MARCHING: 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.
This new administration is attacking the hard-won protections of our climate, health, and communities, and the rights of people of color, workers, indigenous people, immigrants, women, LGBTQIA, young people, and more.
If the policies he proposed on the campaign trail are implemented, they will destroy our climate, decimate our jobs and livelihoods, and undermine the civil rights and liberties won in many hard fought battles.
It’s up to us to stop that from happening before it starts.
Our fights are tied together, and we will only succeed together. That’s why, from now through the first 100 days and beyond, we are taking action and standing up for everything and everyone we love — and we are calling on everyone to join us on April 29th; for a massive march to bring our demands to the streets of Columbus, Ohio!
We’re ready to fight back, and we are ready to build a resistance to Trump and Congress’ attacks on our climate, our communities, and our jobs that stands alongside the unprecedented Women’s Marches and other powerful rallies that shook the globe in the hours and days following the inauguration of Donald Trump and the 115th Congress.
On April 29th, we will march for our families. We will march for our air, our water, and our land. We will march for clean energy jobs and climate justice. We will march for our communities and the people we love.
In 2014, we said that it takes everyone to change everything. Now, with everything at stake, everyone has a part to play."
⚑ IMPORTANT NOTE
This event is in collaboration with People's Climate Movement and their Washington DC climate march on April 29th.
This march will mirror the March for Science in order to provide powerful symbolism. The beginning of the route will be at COSI where we will march in solidarity to the Statehouse. Together, we will chant, pray, and utilize collective action to declare to our elected officials that our futures are not for sale.
Speakers, musicians, artists, dancers, and all talented individuals: send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, preferred contact method(s), preferred time slot(s), and your talent to be put on the schedule of events for this powerful climate march!
