Join many of us from Dryden and throughout Tompkins County at the largest climate march in history. New York City is the place to be on Sunday, September 21st. More than 750 grassroots and “big green” organizations from around the world are coming together to bring attention to climate change and the need for the world’s leaders to take action.
UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon is hosting a climate change summit for political leaders in New York City begining September 23rd. It will be the most high-profile, global moment focused on climate change in years. The world will be sending them a message that “talk is cheap; it’s time for action!”
Trains and hundreds of buses will be bringing people from across the country for the march. Including a dedicated train from San Francisco to New York, a dedicated train from D.C. to New York, and buses from multiple points outside of New York. More than 45 labor unions have signed onto the march, pledging to turn out members in New York City and from surrounding areas.
In New York City, the message will be difficult to ignore: the march to flow directly through the middle of Manhattan beginning at Columbus Circle at 11:30am and proceeding on 59th Street to 6th Avenue, down 6th Avenue to 42nd Street, then right on 42nd Street to 11th Avenue. The route passes by some of New York City’s most famous landmarks, from Rockefeller Center to Times Square.
