On April 29, the People’s Climate March will bring together hundreds of thousands of people from across the country to demand jobs, justice and real climate solutions. Here in Boston, we’ll have a full day of workshops and activities to build and grow our movement, starting with an energizing rally at 12:00 pm on Boston Common. Join us! (Facebook page)

Schedule
12:00-1:00pm

  • Rally for jobs, justice and bold action on climate on Boston Common

1:00-3:30pm

  • Action tables, activities, and art-making on Boston Common
  • Teach-ins on the connections between the climate fight and other struggles for justice–including racial justice, immigrant justice, worker justice, and more–at SEIU 32BJ (26 West St, Boston, next to the Common)

Other Marches to Support
On May 1, just two days later, immigrants, workers and supporters across the country, including in Boston, will be marching and striking for dignity and respect. Instead of hosting a separate march on April 29, we’ll be asking the Boston climate movement to show up in force and take to the streets on May 1. Join us as we mobilize alongside our brothers and sisters in the immigrants’ rights and labor movements. More details soon!

Who is organizing this?
A local coalition of labor unions, environmental justice groups, faith organizations, youth groups, and climate activism groups has been meeting over the last several months to both a) send hundreds of people from the Boston area to the People’s Climate March in Washington, DC (buy your ticket here and/or donate to help others go!) and b) plan a local PCM action here in Boston. We’re joining forces because we think this could be a transformative moment for the Massachusetts climate movement. We share a powerful vision: together, we want to build a forceful, justice-centered movement that lifts up the voices and leadership of those most affected by climate change. Our work together is grounded in the Jemez Principles for Democratic Organizing.
