      WE DID IT!! Over 400,000 people of ALL kinds took to the streets of Manhattan!
      SPECIAL thanks go to our bus and train captains: Sarah Brandt, Yupei Guo, Diane Lentakis, Charles Button, Sam Callaway, Brianna Church, Rich Miller, Emily McInerney, Roberta Paro, Kat Dargan, Pat Wallace, Henry Lowendorf, Stan Heller, and yours truly. And dozens of other volunteers getting the word out and recruiting people for the streets of Manhattan! We had 608 on the buses and 575 on the trains! It was a long day but everyone made it through!
      With over 2,000 actions in over 160 countries the climate change issue is more mainstream than ever. This was Manhattan on Sunday...something most tourist didn't expect to see!!
