We, the people, are running out of time. Join us on September 8, 2018 to demand our elected officials take urgent action on human-driven climate change, protecting our health, moving to 100% renewable energy and creating local, equitable jobs for our city, state, country and planet.

Indiana is home to five of the top 22 worst greenhouse gas and toxic super polluter coal plants in the nation. Indiana is the second largest source of industrial greenhouse-gas emissions in the United States and exceed those from 187 countries (more info at www.superpolluters.com). The time to act is now.

We rise in solidarity on Sept. 8 with communities across the globe. We march in advance and in support of the Global Climate Summit in San Francisco. Elected officials in Indiana, hear our message: take action now.

The time for empty declarations of intent and unreasonable transition timelines has closed. It is time to make Indiana fossil-free and create sustainable, equitable jobs!


----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We will gather at 10:00 AM at the Indiana Statehouse (outdoors) and begin the march from the statehouse.

The march ends at Christ Church Cathedral at approximately 11:15 AM. Following the march a Community Forum will take place from 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM, where we will ask our elected officials to support climate, jobs, and justice for Hoosiers!
