People’s Climate March in Houston

April 29, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

VERY IMPORTANT LOCATION CHANGE

Clinton Park, 200 Mississippi Street, Houston

PLEASE NOTE THE PLACE AND TIME CHANGE!! We are coming together for climate, jobs, and justice in what could be the largest demonstration on climate justice to hit the Petro Metro. The People’s Climate Movement will be at Clinton Park, 200 Mississippi Street from 10 AM to 1 PM on April 29th.  Google map: https://goo.gl/maps/LUoFbjaiiF42 But in order to make this event the largest the Houston area has ever seen, we need your participation. Sign up for the event here on Action Network:https://actionnetwork.org/events/houston-peoples-climate-march Share this event on Facebook and Twitter. Forward this information to your friends, family, and network. We come in solidarity. Clinton  Park is surrounded by industry. People in our community are impacted daily by air and water quality issues. While some may not see the direct connection to climate change, it’s important to remember that these issues are interconnected. Therefore, we support front line communities, here in Houston and beyond. There will be stunning visuals. Our artist friends are hard at work preparing art work for the event. We will have a drone to capture aerial views.

The 2017 People’s Climate Movement is happening, https://peoplesclimate.org/ We demand bold and urgent action to address the climate crisis.

Donald Trump is a threat to the future of our planet, the safety of our communities, and the health of our families.

The new administration has attacked the hard-won protections of our climate, health, and communities, and the rights of people of color, workers, indigenous people, immigrants, women, LGBTQIA, young people, and more.

We’ve fought back with a wave of protests larger than at almost any other point in history — let’s make sure that we mark the 100th day of his presidency with another mass action that stands up for our communities.

Join us on April 29th. Time and location to be determined soon. Let’s march together.
