On September 21, 350 Madison was part of history in the making as 150 of us traveled to New York City via 3 charter buses to participate in a 400,000-voices-strong People’s Climate March. Many of us marched under a giant black octopus representing the attack of Enbridge Energy’s tar sands pipelines entangling our state. We joined 2,808 solidarity events in 166 countries to demand that global leaders convening at the NYC UN climate summit take meaningful action now. Commentators have said the People’s Climate March heralds the coming of age of our movement for climate justice. We also think it represents a milestone for 350 Madison.
We invite you to join our People’s Climate March Celebration on October 6 where we’ll share stories & photos from the march and talk about where to take our momentum from here.
