People’s Climate March – DC & Montpelier
On April 29th, on the 100th day of the Trump administration, people will be gathering all over the country to show their support for climate action and their resistance to policies that would take us backward. If you are interested in traveling to D.C. the Vermont Natural Resources is taking a bus with its members and 350.org is sponsoring several buses. Members of VNRC can ride an overnight bus to D.C. for the People’s Climate March by emailing email@example.com to reserve a seat. Seats are $125 per person, roundtrip and payment is due by Friday, April 7th.

If traveling is not an option, a sister march will be taking place in Montpelier from 1-4pm that Saturday. The Vermont event is being organized by a diverse coalition of Environmental, Justice, Equality, and Faith groups including The Sierra Club, 350VT, Outright Vermont, VPIRG, Rights and Democracy, VNRC, and Vermont Interfaith Power and Light.

We saw with the women’s march just how much energy and people power is here in this small state and we plan to harness it!
