Join People’s Climate March in Pensacola




As part of a global day of action, the Northwest Florida People’s Climate March will be held from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. on September 8 at Plaza De Luna Memorial Square, located at 900 South Palafox Street in Pensacola. Led locally by 350 Pensacola of Rise for Climate, the march will be one of thousands of rallies taking place worldwide to demand that local leaders commit to building a fossil-free world and totally renewable energy that works for all of us.

“Together, we can make governments, institutions and corporations divest from fossil fuel,” says Bill McKibben, a longtime environmental advocate and founding fellow of the Sanders Institute, of Burlington, Vermont, which supports the program. “Together, we can elect candidates who vow to keep carbon in the ground. Together, we can use our collective voice to move our local communities, states and nation to 100 percent renewable energy.”

The Action Network is an open platform that empowers individuals and groups to organize for progressive causes.
