There is no denying it: Donald Trump’s election is a threat to the future of our planet, the safety of our communities, and the health of our families. If the policies he proposed on the campaign trail are implemented, they will destroy our climate, decimate our jobs and livelihoods, and undermine the civil rights and liberties won in many hard fought battles.
It’s up to us to stop that from happening before it starts. Join us during the first 100 hours of Trump’s presidency to set a tone that we will not stand for any attempts to undermine the fight for justice.
Join us in standing up to a President who denies the reality of climate change, and openly attacks women, people of color, immigrants, Muslims, people with disabilities, LGBTQ people, workers, and so many more.

We need to stand up and take action to protect everything and everyone we love; in the first 100 hours of Trump’s administration, in the first 100 days, and beyond.
Our fights are tied together, and we will only succeed together.
In September of 2014, hundreds of thousands of us took to the streets of New York City for the People’s Climate March and demanded that President Barack Obama take action for climate justice before it was too late. Workers, students, human rights leaders, frontline communities, indigenous heroes: we acted together to send a message so powerful and unified the world could not ignore it. And neither could President Obama. He listened, and he began to lead.
Now, Donald Trump is taking office as the only climate denying world leader and threatening to throw all that progress away.
We’re ready to fight back. That’s why the People’s Climate Movement is seizing the first 100 days of the Trump Administration as our own and putting all of our energy toward stopping Trump and Congress’ attacks on our climate, our communities, and our jobs and advance our vision of new American economy that protects our planet and people.
On the first day of the new Trump administration, we will speak truth to power to our leaders – that climate change is real, that front-line communities are under attack and that communities of color, workers, women, Muslims, and immigrants will not stand aside while our rights are taken away.
During the first 100 hours, the People’s Climate Movement is calling for hundreds of actions around the country. In every corner of the nation, we will be in the offices, meetings rooms, and the halls of power to fight back. We will not allow climate deniers to threaten the planet. We will not allow attacks on immigrants, communities of color, women, LGBTQ and workers to become the new normal.
Just before the 100th day of his administration, on Saturday, April 29th, we will come together for one massive march to bring our demands to the streets of Washington, D.C. We will march for our families. We will march for our air, our water, and our land. We will march for clean energy jobs and climate justice. We will march for our communities and the people we love. And we will be louder and stronger than ever before.
Join us. We’re counting on you.
To achieve a transition to just and sustainable future, the People’s Climate Movement is calling on our existing partners as well as other progressive, democratic organizations and leaders in government, the private sector, civil society, and academia to pursue the following strategies:
- Directly and rapidly reduce greenhouse gas and toxic pollution to successfully combat climate change and improve public health
- Mandate a transition to an equitable and sustainable New Energy and Economic Future that limits the temperature increase to 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels
- Provide a Just Transition for communities and workers negatively impacted by the shift to a New Energy and Economic Future that includes targeted economic opportunity and provides stable income, health care, and education
- Demand that every job pays a wage of at least $15 an hour, protects workers, and provides a good standard of living, pathways out of poverty, and a right to organize
- Ensure that in the New Energy and Economic Future, investments are targeted to create pathways for low-income people and people of color to access good jobs and improve the lives of communities of color, indigenous peoples, low-income people, small farmers, women, and workers.
- Make bold investments in the resilience of states, cities, tribes, and communities that are threatened by climate change; including massive investments in infrastructure systems from water, transportation, and solid waste to the electrical grid and safe, green building and increasing energy efficiency that will also create millions of jobs in the public and private sector
- Reinvest in a domestic industrial base that drives towards an equitable and sustainable New Energy and Economic Future, and fight back against the corporate trade-induced global race to the bottom
- Market and policy based mechanisms must protect human rights and critical, native ecosystems and reduce pollution at source
