Why a People’s Climate Tour? Because this mobilization goes far beyond New York City. It has to. To change everything, we need everyone.
As planning for the march comes together, I’m seeing new connections and alliances being made that give me a lot of hope. People around the table have different politics and different life experiences, but the threat of climate change is a common thread. And this threat is also an opportunity: to build a powerful and united social movement that’s dedicated to building a better future for everyone.
I hope you can join us in both Boston and New York. If you haven’t signed up to be part of the march yet, you can do that here.
