New Jersey People's Climate Rally


The conversation about Climate Change has an urgency that needs to be addressed right now. Now under the new administration, all the progress that has been done is regressing. The Peoples Climate Movement’s work focuses on the fall results of last elections. The New Jersey People’s Climate Movement Rally serves a variety of purposes: to inform the audience about the People’s Climate Movement Platform in order to raise their level of awareness so they can support it, to help educate Americans to make everyday choices about how they use their energy, and ultimately engage the community into civic action.

The event will take place from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm at Warinanco Park (Island Behind the lake) in Roselle, New Jersey. This Day of Action is sponsored by the People’s Climate Movement, Food and Water Watch, Climate Reality Project, Organizing For Action, Environmental Justice Green Drinks, Tierra Madres, Calm and Mindful, LLC and many others we are waiting for confirmation.

The NEW JERSEY PEOPLE’S CLIMATE MOVEMENT RALLY will have speakers, artists, community organizers, environmental leaders, and social/environmental activists. The event is free and open to the public.  We would like you to join us that day
