People’s Climate Mobilization

350 Philadelphia invites you to join us on Saturday, April 29th in Washington, DC as we take part in the People’s Climate Mobilization! We, along with tens of thousands of other people, will be marching to call for a rapid and just transition from fossil fuels to clean, renewable energy. Our contingent will link up with other groups from the Philadelphia area, and we’ll carry beautiful puppets, banners, and signs created by our art team.

We hope you can march with us! This page provides information about travel options, the schedule for the day, opportunities to build are for the march, and more. Please click here to sign up to march with 350 PhillyQuestions? Email us at 350philadelphia@gmail.com

Our 350 Philly contingent will be a part of the “Reshapers of Power” section of the march. We will meet in front of the Capitol on Jefferson Drive between 3rd and 4th Streets. To see a map of the full march line-up, click here!
  • 12:30pm: We’ll begin marching up Pennsylvania avenue.
  • 1:30pm: We will surround the White House on all sides, and take powerful collective action to honor the lives at stake and make a loud sound demanding climate justice and good jobs that will drown out all of the climate-denying nonsense that has been coming out of the White House.
  • 3:00pm: We will reconvene at the Washington Monument grounds to connect and share the stories that brought us to DC. We’ll hear from the front line of the climate crisis and share solutions rooted in our own communities. There’ll be music and beautiful art from around the country that powerfully shows our local demands and visions. We’ll even assemble all our individual signs into one collective message of resistance.

Art Builds

Help Us Organize

Since January, members of 350 Philadelphia and other local organizations as well as dozens of new volunteers have been working together to promote the march. So far our work has focused on brainstorming ways to encourage people to attend the march, designing artwork, and organizing methods of transportation to and from DC.

We still need volunteers to help with outreach, art creation, building actions, publicity, fundraising, and other activities. Contact 350philadelphia@gmail.com for more information on how to get involved!
