The People’s Climate March – This Saturday at Clinton Park!

The March for Science was HUGE!
Because of that, the City of Houston has asked us to move to Clinton Park, which has more parking: two lots and ample on-street parking. Public transportation is also closer to this location. Let’s show the city that that we have thousands of folks who support jobs, justice, and the climate!We will be convening on Saturday April 29th at 10 AM at Clinton Park, 200 Mississippi Street. Get there early and be prepared in case of rain. 

Help us keep the momentum and get the word out! This could be the largest gathering in Houston focused on climate change. March with us on April 29th as we come together to resist and march for our families, our communities and our planet.

We come in solidarity. Neighborhoods like Clinton Park and Manchester are surrounded by industry. People in our community are impacted daily by air and water quality issues. While some may not see the direct connection to climate change, it’s important to remember that these issues are interconnected. Therefore, we support frontline communities, here in Houston and beyond.
