Title: People's Climate March
START DATE: Sunday September 21
TIME: 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Location Details:
Lake Merritt Park Amphitheatre
12th St and Lake Merritt Blvd
Oakland
Event Type: Protest
The People’s Climate March is shaping up to be one of the largest climate justice mobilizations in history, with organizers of the march setting a goal of getting a half million people to demonstrate in NYC. In solidarity with the historic NYC event called by 350.org and hundreds of local and national environmental, trade union and social justice organizations across the country, join the West Coast People's Climate Rally.

We want to show the world that the climate crisis can no longer be ignored, that the planet earth is burning, that massive and unprecedented measures must be undertaken now if humanity’s future is to be assured.

While people all over the country are mobilizing for New York, a multitude of activists will undoubtedly be available to join us in Oakland. Let's make the West Coast Solidarity action a great success.
