People’s Climate March is across the country Saturday April 29 2017!

People’s Climate March San Diego is marching for our families, air, water, and land, clean energy jobs and climate justice.
People’s Climate March San Diego reminds us that “Donald Trump’s election threatens the future of our planet, the safety of our communities, and the health of our families. Facing the threat of a President who denies the reality of climate change, and openly attacks women, people of color, immigrants, Muslims, people with disabilities, LGBTQ people, workers, and so many more, we need to stand up and take action to protect everything and everyone we love.”
