People’s Climate March of Southern Illinois
IN SOLIDARITY WITH THE PEOPLE’S CLIMATE MARCH
The People’s Climate March of Southern Illinois is a march for climate justice. We march in solidarity with the main People’s Climate March in Washington D.C. We march in solidarity with people in Southern Illinois and around the world who are adversely affected by the climate crisis. We march in solidarity with all communities and identities that are also currently under attack by the same systems of power that are disrupting our climate: people of color, workers, indigenous people, immigrants, women, LGBTQIA, young people, and more. We march in resistance to this disruption, and we march in support of just solutions and the many grassroots individuals and groups that pursue them.
We march for our families. We march for our air, our water, and our land. We march for clean energy jobs and climate justice. We march for our communities and the people we love.
