“The Peoples Climate Movement is a project of dozens of organizations working together to solve the climate crisis. It started with the historic Peoples Climate March on the eve of the UN Climate Summit in September 2014 when 400,000 people from every walk of life marched through the streets of New York City demanding climate action. “
APRIL 29, 2017 — I marched in Washington D.C. for the People’s Climate March. Thanks to AE Focus for inviting me to photograph the event. It started from Capitol Hill to the Washington Monument.
It was pretty cool that different organizations for different causes were all supporting the same movement.
It was very hot and humid that day, but it was worth it all the way. The temperature reached 91 degrees. I admit I was getting exhausted throughout the day.
However, I felt that I was a part of history in the making and people need to be more aware about what’s going on in our environment.
This large-scale climate march marked President Trump’s first 100 days in office, which have already seen multiple rollbacks of environmental protections and Obama climate policies. The variety of people were from kids and families with posters and costumes. It was definitely more than just a bunch of people walking around.
