We need to stand together to protect our climate, our health, and our communities. Part of that is resisting the current political agenda of denial and obstruction — but it’s also crucial that we build a vision of the world we want, and rise together to make it possible. To change everything, we need everyone. On April 29, let’s march for jobs, justice, and the climate: peoplesclimate.org #ClimateMarch #TucsonClimateMarch

The route, speakers, venues, and logistics of the Tucson People's Climate March is currently being organized by several notable non-profit groups — including the Center for Biological Diversity, the Sierra Club Rincon Group, and Sky Island Alliance. If you or your organization is interested in organizing with us, please email climatemarch2017@skyislandalliance.org. We need your help!

We are looking for interested and experienced people to help lead and/or volunteer for the following committees:
- Logistics
- Safety & Accessibility
- Outreach & Media
- Fundraising & Finances
- Speakers & Entertainment

We will meet-up at 10am in El Presidio Park with guest speakers to launch on a march through downtown departing at 11am. We'll loop back to the park for more speakers, music, a volunteer fair with local organizations, and other activities until 2pm (or later). More details to come soon!

The March yesterday was great! Does anyone have an estimate on the crowd size? I did not see any media coverage in the AZ Daily Star although it published three articles on the national March. I think that's ridiculous for a local paper. Did anyone see or hear any TV or radio coverage of Tucson's March?
Paula Schlusberg
-- 30/04/2017 19:04
I was wondering the same thing, Pamela. Tho' I only saw one (very small) article about the national march in today's paper -- guess I'd better look more closely. But you'd think there'd be at least a mention about the local event.

In addition to marching today, take your commitments a step further by commenting on the EPA's page on Regulations.gov. https://www.regulations.gov/document?D=EPA-HQ-OA-2017-0190-0042 This page was set up in response to Trump's executive order to begin the process of cutting regulations on emissions, but getting comments from the public is a part of that process. It takes less than 30 seconds!

March is in a loop starting and ending at El Presidio. Rally from 10 to 11. March starts at 11, in a loop so we end up at El Presidio. More speakers and a little music from 12 to 2. Join us to march for climate, jobs, justice.

Demagoguery, lies, and greed will not save the planet – but we can. Join us this Saturday as we take to the streets of downtown Tucson to send a clear message to Donald Trump that we will not sit idly by as he jeopardizes our planet, health, and environment. #TucsonClimateMarch We recommend traveling to downtown Tucson by bus, electric streetcar, or bicycle. Check out http://www.suntran.com/routes.php to find schedules and routes. If you must drive, you can look for parking on-street, in surface lots north of El Presidio Park or in the library or Pennington Street garages. Remember to bring a reusable water bottle and dress for the weather. Bring your sign and join us in marching for climate, jobs, and justice.

-- 25/04/2017 15:43
Yes, there will be a MARCH. We start the rally at 10 am and at 11 am we march. We will go in a loop through downtown Tucson - west on Alameda, south on Granada, east on Congress, north on Stone and west on Alameda back to El Presidio Plaza - 0.7 miles. More speakers, music, booths, food trucks, and artwork when we get back to El Presidio, until 2 pm.

It's always been women in the forefront of meaningful social justice movements. Then the men catch on and get all the credit.

Stopping the existential threat of anthropogenic climate change isn't only a moral imperative anymore. The planet might still be here, but human life and civilization as we know it might not be if model predictions of increased famines, droughts, floods, extreme heat events, and other weather phenomena continue to accelerate. As my sign says, if we keep cooking the planet, we'll be the ones cooked in the end.

Has the date been changed to April 22nd? Or is that a separate event?
Carianne Sienna Funicelli Campbell
-- 04/04/2017 05:18
Hi Lisa! There are 2 separate events. One on 4/22 is the Science March. The Climate March is on 4/29. I'm going to both, and I hope to see you there!
Carolyn Classen
-- 04/04/2017 05:18
The April 22event is now a Science rally at El Presidio Park, not a March.
Edda Blume
-- 04/04/2017 05:18
The April 22nd Science March is now a rally only. I think we need a march, so I will attend the Climate March on 4/29
Julie Cohen
-- 04/04/2017 05:18
April 22 is the March/Rally for Science. Separate events.
People's Climate March - Tucson Chapter
-- 04/04/2017 05:18
All the above comments are correct: Science Rally on the 22nd, Climate March on the 29th; both are at El Presidio Park!

Thank you Oscar! Please consider volunteering to help lead the march! It would be quite the symbol to have students - our future, and those most likely to be impacted by climate change - leading this march. Email us at climatemarchtucson@gmail.com

Just wondering Is this protest topic not subsumed in the nation-wide/local sister marches March for Science just one week earlier?
Meg Weesner
-- 07/03/2017 02:29
There are two separate marches, in Washington, in Tucson and elsewhere. The March for Science on April 22 and the People's Climate March on April 29.
Vincent Pawlowski
-- 07/03/2017 02:29
While they may overlap, there are clearly aspects of science that are not part of climate justice (a term used for framing global warming as an ethical and political issue, rather than one that is purely environmental or physical in nature), and vice versa. So, no it is definitely not subsumed by the March for Science.

Are there any groups working on preserving data which is in incredible danger of being lost in the Trump administration? How does one help preserve what we've learned.
