People's Climate March

9/21 • NYC
Join the Largest
Climate March
In History.


We’ll keep you updated as the march gets closer, and we won’t share your email with anyone.

Perfect Timing

World leaders will be gathered in NYC for a landmark U.N. climate meeting — just the right moment for big public pressure.

Massive Scale

We’ll peacefully flood the streets in historic numbers, both in New York City and in solidarity events around the world.

Unprecedented Collaboration

Over 1,500 (!) businesses, unions, faith groups, schools, social justice groups, environmental groups and more, all working together.

Centered on Justice

Committed to principles of environmental justice and equality — representing the communities that are being hit the hardest by climate change.

This is an invitation to change everything.

In September, world leaders are coming to New York City for a UN summit on the climate crisis. UN Secretary­ General Ban Ki-­moon is urging governments to support an ambitious global agreement to dramatically reduce global warming pollution.

With our future on the line and the whole world watching, we’ll take a stand to bend the course of history. We’ll take to the streets to demand the world we know is within our reach: a world with an economy that works for people and the planet; a world safe from the ravages of climate change; a world with good jobs, clean air and water, and healthy communities.

To change everything, we need everyone on board.
Sunday, September 21 in New York City. Join us.

The Lineup - The Story of a New Climate Movement

We want to make sure the People's Climate March tells the story of today's climate movement in all its parts - so we're trying something new, and arranging the contingents of the march in a way that helps us thread our many messages together.

If you're simply looking to march through the streets of New York with more people than have ever come together before to demand action on climate change, head to 86th st and Central Park West.

If you're looking to find a specific group of people to march with, or want to hear more about the narrative of the march and the groups, visit the lineup page here.

ABOUT US


There are several different bodies that are convening to collaborate on the People’s Climate March, including local New York-area community groups, international NGO’s, grassroots networks, churches and faith organizations, and many more. You can see a list of participating organizations here.

Because this is a “movement of movements” moment, the People’s Climate March is being organized in a participatory, open-source model. This means that there isn’t a central “decision-making” body or single coalition. Rather, groups and individuals are collaborating with some basic shared agreements around respect, collaboration, trust, and many are using the Jemez Principles of Environmental Justice.

This September is going to be a success because of the work we all do together – not because of any one person or organization. Take the initiative to organize your community, your school, your workplace, and your neighbors. Find out how you can help here, or find out how your organization can support the People’s Climate March here.

 

Partners

1,500+ Organizations are partnering on the march, including businesses, unions, religious groups, environmental groups, schools, social justice groups, and more.

The People's Climate March will bring together a spectrum of people with a broad range of perspectives to address the climate crisis, which threatens us all. The March will be the most diverse climate-related mobilization in history. Not all participants will agree with the goals, actions or missions of every other group participating, but all have agreed to gather peacefully on common ground to support the shared common goal: Solving the climate crisis. Inclusion on the list of Participating Organizations does not in any form or fashion imply that the People's Climate March endorses or supports the goals, actions or other aspects of the individual groups listed.
