How to Support the People's Climate Movement
April 29, 2017
Today is the People's Climate March. An estimated 150,000+ people are descending on Washington D.C. in sweltering hot temperatures, along with sister marches happening around the world.

Here are other exceptional nonprofits standing for a thriving people and planet:
“IEN is an alliance of Indigenous Peoples whose shared mission is to protect the sacredness of Earth Mother from contamination and exploitation by respecting and adhering to Indigenous Knowledge and Natural Law.”
“Climate-focused campaigns, projects and actions led from the bottom-up by people in 188 countries.”
“We are a tribe of young activists, artists, and musicians from across the globe stepping up as leaders and co-creating the future we know is possible. WE ARE THE ONES WE'VE BEEN WAITING FOR.”
“I am not dreaming. I'm awake. I've been woken by the spirit inside. That demanded I opened my eyes and see the world around me. Seeing that my children's future was in peril. See that my life couldn't wait and slumber anymore. See that I was honored to be among those who are awake. To be alive at this point in time is to see the rising of the Oceti Sakowin. To see the gathering of nations and beyond that, the gathering of all races and all faiths.
Will you wake up and dream with us? Will you join our dream. Will you join us?”

“Bioneers is an innovative nonprofit educational organization that highlights breakthrough solutions for restoring people and planet.”
“Calling All Women...
What becomes possible when millions of women remember who and what we really are - and then direct that collectively towards the greening of our world?”
