On Sunday September 21, 2014, over 750 organizations just like 350.org will gather in NYC to march from Columbus Circle at Central Park to 11th ave. between 34th and 38th streets. This peacable protest is in response to the UN climate meeting that will be taking place that day. We must gather to show our strength in numbers and to prove to the world leaders that will be gathered here that we are serious about taking action against climate change.
People from all over the country will be travelling by bus, train, car, and bicycle in order to be present for this unprecedented show of support for the health and sustainability of our climate and environment.
To "get in the mood" for the climate march on the 21st, Bill McKibben will be speaking at the Boston Opera House for "Building a Movement of Movements: Toward the People's Climate March". There, he will be building support for the march. His speeches are often eloquent, dire, and moving all at once. If you have not heard Bill speak, it would be important for you to attend this event.
In the meantime, attend our weekly 350MA of Greater Lowell meetings leading up to the event to discuss transportation, housing, volunteering, or all of the above!
