To Resist, to Build, to Rise - the People's Climate March 2017

United in the need to protect the climate, to create good-paying jobs and to build a more just world, tomorrow, April 29, 2017, on the 100th day of Donald Trump's presidency, the People's Climate March will be held on the National Mall, Washington, DC, to celebrate both diversity and unity of movements and demonstrations against Trump's divisive agenda.

Themed: "We Resist, We Build, We Rise", the People's March, which started back on September 21, 2014, and was organized by the Peoples Climate Movement on the eve of the United Nations(UN) Climate Summit, saw hundreds of thousands of people from all walks of life marched through New York City, New York, to demand bold and urgent action on the global climate crisis.

Tomorrow, participants will march for climate protections, jobs and justice as they celebrate the diversity and the unity of the movements against the Trump agenda, which has sought to deny climate change, among other environmentally-damning policies. The event is being held on the 100th day that Trump has been in office.

The March starts at 11:00 a.m. local time and will feature eight-blocks within the demonstration staged from Third Street and Jefferson Drive SW. The line-up will be under the follow banners and supporting people: 

1) Protectors of Justice - Indigenous, Frontline Environmental and Climate Justice communities;

2) Creators of Sanctuary - Immigration, LGBTQI, Women, Latinos, Water Keepers, Food Sovereignty and Land Rights'

3) Builders of Democracy - Labor, Government Workers, Voting Rights and Democracy Organizations;

4) Guardians of the Future - Children, Parents, Elders, Youth, Students and Peace Advocates;

5) Defenders of Truth - Scientists, Educators and the Health Community;

6) Keepers of Faith - Religious and Interfaith Groups;

7) Reshapers of Power - Anti-corporate, Anti-nuclear, Fossil Fuel Resistance and Renewable Energy;

8) Many Struggles, One Home - Environmentalists, Climate Activists and more.

If, last week's attendance at the March for Science is indicative per tomorrow's event, then close to or more than 500,000 people, could walk on Washington, DC, to resist, to build and to rise in the era of Trump.
