Prepping for People’s Climate March


  • PCMfeetWho’s we? The Climate Action Alliance of the Valley, the Sierra Club, the Voluntary Gas Tax group, Occupy Harrisonburg, JMU E.A.R.T.H. Club, New Community Project, EMU Earthkeepers, 350 Central VA, and every single citizen of the Shenandoah Valley who’s concerned about keeping Earth livable for the future.
  • What are we ready for? To go to New York City on September 21st to join the People’s Climate March, the nation’s largest climate march, to demand bold, political action to address the climate crisis.
  • Why September 21st?  World leaders will be coming to New York City for a United Nations summit to discuss climate change, and thousands of people are coming together to show that our communities are resilient, powerful, and united.
  • How are we going? By chartered bus, leaving JMU’s Memorial Hall at 3:30 AM the 21st, returning 2:00 AM the 22nd.  A long day but worth every minute.
