      Only 1 Day! to THE PEOPLE'S CLIMATE MARCH SEPTEMBER 21 IN NYC!
      2,100: The number of People's Climate events taking place this weekend in over 160 countries around the world -- this is part of something truly global.
      1,500:
      Partner organizations officially supporting the march -- and it's still growing!

      1,000:
      Artists who have been hard at work for months making absolutely stunning materials for the march using more than 100 gallons of paint, 350 yards of posterboard, 13 parachutes, and miles of cardboard tubes (because no one is allowed to use wood in the march - NYPD rules).

      500:
      Buses coming from across the country. Lined up end to end that's more than twice the width of Manhattan at its widest point - and they're carrying 25,000 people to the march.

      475:
      The number of volunteers we have to help support the march this weekend as greeters and march marshals -- but we still need 200 more! Click here to sign up to volunteer, and we'll get you oriented ASAP.

      362:
      The number of college campuses where students are organizing to turn out for this march in huge numbers. Young people will not accept a future ravaged by climate change.

      300:
      The length in feet of a single banner in the march. It might just be the biggest climate banner ever (at least that I've seen - you can find it in the "We Know Who's Responsible" theme).

      125:
      World leaders planning to attend the climate leadership summit on Tuesday -- more than at any previous climate summit or negotiation. Let's send them to the negotiating table with the sound of a enormous movement ringing in their ears.

      82:
      The expected temperature on Sunday. That's beautiful weather to make history in.

      29:
      The number of marching bands that will be making sure this march has a beat. And that's not counting the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 3 bagpipers.

      26:
      The number of city blocks being blocked off for this march to lineup - check out the lineup here and find your people. Or just show up at 86th St and Central Park West at 11 AM.

      5:
      How many friends you should bring (or at least forward this email to) - because to change everything it takes everyone.

      1:
      Planets we have. Which means we also only have one shot to get this right.

      0:
      The amount of progress we'll make if we stay home. We don't know that this will work - but we do know that if we stay home, the only thing that's going to change is the climate.


       This is going to be huge.

      We have a route!!
      and a time!!! PCM starts at 11:30 AM

      The passenger drop-off, bus parking and pick-up info
      • The police have mandated that passengers will be dropped off at 86th Street between Central Park West and Columbus Ave. You'll be met by bus greeters when you arrive. They'll give you important info about the march and where to go. PLEASE DON'T DISEMBARK UNTIL A BUS GREETER HAS COME TO SEE YOU.
      • After buses drop off the passengers, they'll drive to your allotted parking block which will be south and west of 11th ave. and 34th st. This is where you'll meet your bus at the end of the march. 
      • The march will line up between 86th and 59th on Central Park West, just north of Columbus Circle. This may seem like a bunch of blocks to walk to get to the start of the march but, b/c there'll be so many people and activities going on, we need this whole space to convene. Trust us, it's going to be fun! 
      • There will be porto-potties and water stations along the march route.
      Let's make The People's Climate March the largest-ever demonstration demanding action on climate change!  Read more about it here. To change everything, we need everyone on board. Sunday, September 21 in New York City. Join us.  _______________________________________________________________________________________________
