People's Climate March

In September, world leaders came to New York City for a historic UN summit on climate change. With our future on the line and the whole world watching, we took a weekend and used it to bend the course of history.

Together, we took 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 healthy communities for everyone.
