On September 8th, after months of organizing and movement-building, the Peoples Climate Movement will move tens of thousands of people across the country into action, joining partners from around the world, to show our elected leaders that we demand action on climate change. 

Eight weeks later, millions more will take those demands to the polls, making Climate, Jobs, and Justice central issues in the mid-term elections and beyond.

In the past year Trump has launched unprecedented attacks on our environment, the clean power plan, and the Environmental Protection Agency. His administration has trampled on the rights of frontline communities hardest hit by climate change and deregulated protections for our precious natural resources. The good news? More than ever, people are ready to take action, to hit the streets, and fight back.

Throughout 2018, using the Global Climate Action Summit and the 2018 mid-term elections as motivating moments, the Peoples Climate Movement will execute a comprehensive organizing, mobilizing, and movement-building program.

Launching this spring and escalating throughout the summer, our 2018 plans will manifest on September 8th in hundreds of events across the country with tens of thousands of people taking part in events and actions for climate, jobs, and justice. Then, even more civically-engaged Americans will demand climate action at the ballot box in the mid-term elections.

We will be calling for a transition to a new 100% clean and renewable energy future that creates millions of family sustaining jobs, and ensures that racial and economic justice are core to action on climate in every community.

Our communities, our planet, and our future depend on a climate movement that reaches all corners of this country. To change everything, it takes everyone — and with your help we can build a sustainable world for generations to come.
