Join Rainforest Action Network at the People’s Climate March

4986355107_943fb11125_o.jpgOn September 23, United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon will convene a summit of global politicians and emitters to discuss climate change in the lead up to the U.N. climate talks in 2015 in Paris.

On Sunday the 21st, a diverse coalition of groups has called for the largest climate march in North American history to send a message to those global leaders that business as usual is not enough.

Rainforest Action Network will be at the People’s Climate March with an important message: You can’t fight climate change without challenging corporate power. 

RAN has a 29 year history of running hard-hitting campaigns against a rogue’s gallery of climate criminals: the worst logging, fossil fuel extraction and finance companies on the planet. From Wall Street banks funding tar sands and coal to global forest destroyers like Cargill and Asia Pulp and Paper to fossil fuel emitters like Duke Energy and TransCanada, we’ve taken a stand to fight for the survival of the forests, the planet and those living on it.

So we’ll be in New York marching with our friends and allies in the fight against unchecked corporate greed. Before that, we’ll be getting inspired with an afternoon of workshops and an evening of partying. 

We hope you’ll join us!
