People’s Climate Movement March — April 29, 2017 — Washington, DC
There is no denying it: Donald Trump’s election is a threat to the future of our planet, the safety of our communities, and the health of our families.This new administration is attacking the hard-won protections of our climate, health, and communities, and the rights of people of color, workers, indigenous people, immigrants, women, LGBTQIA, young people, and more. If the policies he proposed on the campaign trail are implemented, they will destroy our climate, decimate our jobs and livelihoods, and undermine the civil rights and liberties won in many hard fought battles.

Hear from the front line of the climate crisis and share solutions rooted in marchers' own communities. There will be music and art from around the country that shows local demands and visions. Individual signs will be gathered into one collective message. The Advanced Biofuels USA message goes beyond resistance to planned positive action to work to replace as much fossil-based fuel as possible in the US and around the world. We will demonstrate our mission of promoting understanding, development and use of advanced biofuels.
