On Saturday, April 29, people from all over America are converging in Washington, D.C. for jobs, justice, and a safe climate at the People's Climate March, and holding sister events around the country.
The Climate Mobilization is a proud partner of the march, and will be participating in a great series of events in and around the March in the days leading up to 4/29 in D.C.

Climate Emergency Movement Training: DC
We'll be covering The Climate Mobilization's core concepts, strategies, and organizing best practices to carry out the vision laid out in our newly published "Blueprint for a Climate Emergency Movement", to build a critical mass of public support for the common-sense demand to launch a WWII-scale emergency national mobilization to reach 100% clean energy and eliminate greenhouse gas emissions within the next decade, guarantee full employment in a sustainable economy, and begin restoring a safe climate for all of us.
This event is free, with food!
6:30pm: Doors open.
7:00-9:00pm: Training takes place.
You can also RSVP and share on Facebook here!
