March schedule

9:00am:   Arrive in Washington, DC: Buses begin arriving at RFK Stadium in Washington, DC from across the country.

11:00am: March Line-Up: We will gather in front of the Capitol Building at 3rd and Jefferson SW in contingents that spell out the values we share: justice, truth, democracy, faith and more. No matter what community you’re marching with, or where you’re coming from, there will be a spot for you. 

12:30pm: Kickoff the march: We’ll begin marching up Pennsylvania avenue towards the White House.

2:00pm:   Collective Action: We will surround the White House, and take powerful collective action to honor the lives at stake and make a loud sound demanding climate justice and good jobs that will drown out all of the climate-denying nonsense that has been coming out of this Administration.

3:00pm:   End of March Activities: We will reconvene at the Washington Monument grounds to connect and share the stories that brought us to DC. We’ll hear from the front line of the climate crisis and share solutions rooted in our own communities. There’ll be music and beautiful art from around the country that powerfully shows our local demands and visions. We’ll even assemble all our individual signs into one collective message of resistance.

6:00pm:  Women Leading Solutions on the Frontlines of Climate Change
Join us for a dynamic gathering with worldwide women leaders joined in solidarity to speak out against environmental and social injustice, draw attention to root causes of the climate crisis, and present the diverse array of visions and strategies with which they are working to shape a healthy and equitable world. Included in topic discussions will be resistance efforts from Standing Rock to the Amazon; Indigenous rights, environmental racism and frontline communities; the intersection of gender and environment; and women’s leadership and calls for action within a climate justice framework. We are thrilled to be presenting this event with the partnership of Impact Hub D.C.
