Peoples Climate Rally and March: Rise for Climate, Jobs, and Justice

Start: Saturday, September 08, 2018 1:00 PM

End: Saturday, September 08, 2018 3:00 PM


On September 8, thousands of rallies will be held in cities and towns around the world to demand our local leaders commit to building a fossil free world that works for all of us. As part of this movement, a coalition of 20+ groups will be hosting a Peoples Climate Rally and March in Milwaukee, WI. Starting at noon, we'll have tables and other exhibits in Zeidler Union Square. At 1 PM, we'll have a rally, and afterwards we will march to the Milwaukee City Hall and back.

Join us as we hold our local leaders to account and demand that they walk the talk on climate action.
