April 29th People’s Climate Movement in Washington DC!
WE RESIST, WE BUILD, WE RISE
Join a massive wave of action for JOBS, JUSTICE, and the CLIMATE!!! There is a state-wide coalition organizing around the march, that will continue to grow the movement in NC when we return. You can find bus links for NC buses going to the march from New Bern, Raleigh, Chapel Hill, Greensboro, Boone, and Asheville on the main People’s Climate Movement website now!!! peoplesclimate.org/transportation More buses from Charlotte, Greenville, and Hamlet, will be added soon!! Plus, one or two buses going up from the frontline communities along the proposed Atlantic Coast Pipeline route!
Let’s show them our people power from NC!!!!
There will be a final rehearsal on Sunday, April 23rd at the Paperhand Puppet studio in Saxapahaw from 12-4 to prepare for the march. They will need about 100 volunteers to help make this an awesome, creative action in DC! Even if you miss the rehearsal, you can still participate. More details as they are worked out, as to where people on the buses and others traveling from NC will meet in DC!!
The flow of the day in DC has been announced for the 29th!
11:00 am: We will gather in front of the Capitol Building in contingents that spell out the values we share: justice, truth, democracy, faith and more. 12:30 start marching up Pennsylvania Ave.
1:30 pm: We will surround the White House on all sides, and take powerful collective action to honor the lives at stake and make a loud sound demanding climate justice and good jobs that will drown out all of the climate-denying nonsense that has been coming out of the White House.
3:00 pm: We will reconvene at the Washington Monument grounds to connect and share the stories that brought us to DC. We’ll hear from the front line of the climate crisis and share solutions rooted in our own communities. There’ll be music and beautiful art from around the country that powerfully shows our local demands and visions. We’ll even assemble all our individual signs into one collective message of resistance.
Spread the word!!
