People's Climate March in NYC, Sunday 9/21
This September, world leaders are coming to New York City for a historic UN summit on climate change. With our future on the line and the whole world watching, let’s take a weekend and use it to bend the course of history--join in by attending the People's Climate March.
Together, we’ll take to the streets to demand the world we know is within our reach: a world with an economy that works for people and the planet. A world safe from the ravages of climate change. A world with good jobs, clean air, and healthy communities for everyone.

Tickets will be $25/person. However, we don't want cost to be a barrier to anyone who really wants to come to this historic event. If you want to attend but can't afford a ticket, some scholarships will be available, so go ahead and sign up at the reduced ticket price ($15) for low-income folks and college students. If you really can't afford a ticket at all, we definitely still want you to come! Reserve one of the "I want to go, but I need a scholarship" tickets on this page and just email Stephanie to confirm. Finally, if you want to support the People's Climate March but you're not sure you can attend (or if you're just feeling generous), consider funding a scholarship for a youth leader or someone who cannot afford a ticket by making a donation.
In February 2013 we helped facilitate the attendance of over 100 Delawareans to the historic Forward on Climate Rally in Washington D.C. Whether you were able to attend that event or not, we're going to need even more people to help us make history again and show world leaders that we're serious about the needed for climate action!
