Why We March. People’s Climate March Sunday, September 21st

 There are so many reasons to March.  We’ve got a few to share, as well as details about where to go, when to be there and what to expect.

WHERE TO GO:

Enter at 58th Street and 9th avenue because that is where everyone from the Jewish People’s Climate contingent will be, including the 14th Street Y!  We will be on 58th Street between 8th and 9th avenue, but be sure and enter at 9th avenue!

Look for the 14th Street Y banners!

 

WHEN TO BE THERE:

Be prepared to show around 11AM, the march is scheduled to begin promptly at 11:30AM.

 

OTHER THINGS TO NOTE:

  • To learn more about the narrative of the march and the groups, visit the lineup page here.
  • At 12:58pm a moment of silence in commemoration of the victims of climate change worldwide will be held – and at 1:00pm they will sound the ” climate alarm.

 

WHERE WE’LL WIND UP: 

  • The march will end on 11th Avenue, where there will be a huge celebration of everything we just accomplished — a massive People’s Block Party.
  • The block party will have six different areas, one for each of the march’s themes, where you’ll be able to learn about the many issues connected to the climate crisis and connect with other people who want to continue to organize around them after the march.
  • There will be dozens of food trucks parked nearby, stages with music, poetry and performances from around the world, community groups displaying the art they made for the march, and a powerful ribbon-tying ceremony where you can pledge to continue to take action on climate.
  • It’s going to be a huge celebration, not only of what we’ve done, but also of what we will do — it’s the time to talk and get inspired about what comes next after the People’s Climate March.
