This is a Movement, not a Moment. For Climate, Justice, and Jobs.
This rally is your chance to show our community that people in the Heartland have a voice and that we stand with the marchers at the People’s Climate Movement March in Washington, DC on 4/29.
Given the Administration’s and Congress’s increasing assault on research and regulations that protect climate, the air, and water, it is clear we must fight to protect the gains made over the last 30+ years while we articulate and demand initiatives to move our nation to a new, clean energy economy.
It’s critical that a broad-based movement of concerned citizens, scientists, environmental advocates, social justice groups and labor push forward our vision of a clean, safe world where the rights of all people are protected and expanded. To achieve that vision, we all must work together, here, in our communities. Time is of the essence. Join us and begin!
