The marchers of the Great March for Climate Action have walked 3,000 miles over 8 months to arrive at the nation’s capital. They have born witness to those living on the front lines from coast to coast. They’ve become stewards for the people and the land, and have collected stories on behalf of the individuals facing injustices from climate change first hand. Their promise to share those stories in D.C will be an event that unites citizens of the U.S in solidarity. The Great March for Climate Action has created a living megaphone, and with their arrival into D.C they will amplify the collective voices with a resounding demonstration to our political leaders and corporate rulers that the people are resilient and intolerant of inaction on the climate crisis.
Join us for an evening of storytelling and reflection on the places, people, and events that have shaped and carried the Great March for Climate Action across the country, and be part of their promise to deliver those testimonies to the nation’s capital.
See you in D.C.!
