The People’s Climate March is a nationwide event to re-energize and build the movement for climate action in order to fight pollution, protect human rights, and transform our economy.
Here on the Olympic Peninsula, we have the opportunity to build a coalition of communities and cultures dedicated to a just transition toward community resilience. Climate action here can mean moving toward stable jobs with good wages, building and retrofitting infrastructure to generate our own energy, increasing efficiency, and preparing for climate changes to come.
Together we can achieve a better future for us all. This is why we are concentrating our efforts into a joint march for the whole North Olympic Peninsula. This is our Peninsula, our future, and our climate.
In addition to climate action on the Peninsula, we stand up to protect the recently signed Paris accord, in which nations work together to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees C, and thereby hopefully sustain a livable planet. We reject the call by members of the current federal administration to pull out of the Paris agreement and unleash a new wave of unnecessary and lethal fossil-fuel extraction.
The Sierra Club North Olympic Group and Olympic Climate Action invite you to join us. Let’s march together for our future. We have a great lineup of speakers and others to inform and inspire you!
We use non-violent means to achieve change. We are committed to nonviolence, inspired by the spirit of Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr., and other peaceful protesters before us. No violence, no property damage. We believe that this approach offers the best means of creating lasting progress toward a just and healthy world.
