Peace & Justice Rally kicking off People’s Climate March!

Sunday, September 21st 2014  10am-11:30am New York, NY

World leaders are coming to New York City for a UN summit on the climate crisis. With our future on the line and the whole world watching, we’ll take to the streets to demand a world safe from war and the connected ravages of climate change. The US military is the largest user of fossil fuels in the world and is modernizing and building new nuclear weapons. We march to slash the bloated military budget and to create a world with a sustainable and just economy that works for people, peace and the planet. We will march out from the rally to join the People’s Climate March.
