An estimated 200,000 people converged in Washington, DC on Saturday April 29, with the rallying cry “We Resist! We Build! We Rise!”
On April 29th, students, workers, faith communities, Indigenous Nations, community organizations, and environmental groups joined together to make it clear that this resistance will defend our communities, now and forever.
The March was a beautiful, hopeful moment. And now, together, we will chart another path for America: away from Trump’s agenda for a cruel, polluted and divided country, and towards a clean energy economy that works for everyone.
Over 900 organizations partnered with the People’s Climate Movement in planning for the March and turning people out! In addition to the main March in Washington, over 375 sister marches were held across the US and around the world!
