On Saturday, April 29th, CleanAirNow cosponsored the People’s Climate March and rally in Kansas City.
Hundreds marched in rainy weather to protest the Trump Administration’s outright disregard for the threat of climate change. Protesters displayed solidarity in bringing attention to an administration hostile to basic environmental protections.
Afterwards, a rally was held that featured speakers bringing a strong, intersectional message of climate justice.
It brought attention to numerous environmental issues, from personal activity to holding corporations accountable.
It was a great opportunity for people to come together and demand environmental justice in these politically difficult times.
Special thanks to People’s Climate KC for organizing this event and allowing us to cosponsor. Follow them@ClimateMarchKC on Twitter!
