Last Tuesday, July 1st Milano hosted a planning event for the People’s Climate March. Representatives from various sectors including organized labor, youth, environmental justice, retirees, environmental and peace movements, student groups, food justice, the arts, etc were well represented. The event had over 500 participants and was deemed a great success by event organizers.
The focus of the evening was getting these varied sectors organized around mobilization efforts leading to the march that will take place on Sunday, September 21, 2014. The march will happen at a time when the world’s leaders will be in NYC for the UN’s Climate Summit 2014. Please visit the People’s Climate March website for more details. There will be another planning meeting likely in August, with details to follow.
