      Mark Twain once said, “History doesn’t repeat itself, but it rhymes very well.”  Just like the Civil Rights movement and the anti-Viet Nam war movement, the climate movement is on the same path.  You can help make it grow to global proportions!  You may have heard the buzz already about the largest climate march in US history but just in case you haven’t, here are the basics.  World leaders will be in New York City for a historic UN summit on climate change this September.  The Sierra Club, along with tens of thousands of passionate and dedicated allies, will flood the streets of NYC in a unified demonstration to act on climate!

      Let's make The People's Climate March the largest-ever demonstration demanding action on climate change!  Read more about it here

      We're calling on President Obama to put real solutions in place to reduce climate pollution that will

      inspire leaders in countries around the world and compel them to take action.

      WHAT: The People's Climate March
      WHO: Sierra Club, 150,000 passionate & dedicated allies, and you!
      WHERE: NYC!
      WHEN: Sunday, September 21st
      WHY: Because we know what will happen if we don’t!

      This is an invitation to change everything.

      In September, world leaders are coming to New York City for a UN summit on the climate crisis. UN Secretary­ General Ban Ki-­moon is urging governments to support an ambitious global agreement to dramatically reduce global warming pollution.

      With our future on the line and the whole world watching, we’ll take a stand to bend the course of history. We’ll take 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 water, and healthy communities.

      To change everything, we need everyone on board.
      Sunday, September 21 in New York City. Join us.
