Everything we have struggled to move forward in the United States is in peril. Our loved ones feel under siege, and those in power in Washington are advancing a dark and dangerous vision of America that we know is untrue. To change everything, we need everyone.

Why we’re marching

On the 100th Day of the Trump Administration, we will be in the streets of Washington D.C. to show the world and our leaders that we will resist attacks on our people, our communities and our planet.

We will come together from across the United States to strengthen our movement. We will demonstrate our power and resistance at the gates of the White House. We will bring our solutions to the climate crisis and the problems that affect our communities to our leaders in Congress to demand action.

We March to:

* Advance solutions to the climate crisis [that are] rooted in racial, social and economic justice and committed to protecting front-line communities and workers.
* Protect our right to clean air, water, land, healthy communities and a world at peace.
* Immediately stop attacks on immigrants, communities of color, indigenous and tribal people and lands and workers.
* Ensure public funds and investments create good paying jobs that provide a family-sustaining wage and benefits and preserve workers’ rights, including the right to unionize.
* Fund investments in our communities, people and environment to transition to a new clean and renewable energy economy that works for all.
* Protect our basic rights to a free press, protest and free speech.

March with us on April 29th
as we come together to resist
and march for our families,
our communities and our planet.

Join us on April 29th

Senate Democrats plan filibuster to stop Gorsuch confirmation to Supreme Court

Demand they filibuster Gorsuch's confirmation.

Working families, many of whom live in or near major cities, disproportionately experience the toll of environmental injustices everyday—high pollution levels and increased exposure to environmental hazards at home and at work are a reality for too many. As an educator, I know first hand the impact that a healthy environment has on working people's’ ability to learn and thrive.

Healthy, vibrant communities and economies cannot survive without clean air to breathe and clean water to drink. We must make that message clear and join the People's Climate March to make sure the 100th day of the Trump administration is met by the same force of protest that have marred his first 50. From day one of Trump’s presidency, working people have taken action with inspiring acts of resistance and together, we will continue. As you’ve seen in countless news reports, there are few things more uplifting than when working people come together and raise our voices for the world we want to see.

The 2014 climate march was the largest in our nation’s history and this one will be even bigger. Everyone, from every sector from our nation's workforce is ready to speak up. Educators such as myself are ready to lock arms with airport workers, nail salon workers, and concerned moms and dads who are ready to take action for our environment. By rigging the system in favor of corporate polluters, self-interested politicians kill the creation of new jobs and industries, and destroy the clean air and water our families and communities need to thrive.

From the Fight For $15 to Black Lives Matter and Women's March on Washington, D.C., working people are united in speaking out against the system that is clearly rigged against us. Now we must come together to demand that future generations have a healthy and safe environment in which to live and prosper. Join our growing resistance: on April 29, the 100th day of Trump’s presidency, lift your voice in the People's Climate March near you.

The climate action movement is growing and getting stronger every day because working people around the nation joined the call demanding that we find solutions that will protect our communities for generations to come. Join the movement.

A look at how Trump's moves on coal will affect the industry
Experts say coal's biggest problem isn't a shortage of the fuel to dig or even climate change regulations but cheap and abundant natural gas. Gas prices dropped as advances in drilling such as hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, greatly increased the amount of gas on the market. For many utilities, that's made gas a more attractive fuel than coal.
