About the People’s Climate March
The People’s Climate March was organized to “show the world and our leaders that we will resist attacks on our people, our communities and our planet.” April 29 coincides with the 100th day of the new administration, which has posed serious threats to the future of our planet, the safety of our communities, and the health of our families.
Although a large contingent of Ashevilleans will be attending the national March in D.C., it’s critical that we make our voices heard in our own communities.
The Climate Focus Sub-Group of Indivisible AVL’s own Environment Team organized the local AVL Climate Rally & March.
