WE MARCHED BECAUSE OUR LIVES DEPEND ON IT.

This March was a huge challenge, and a tremendous experience in building community and showcasing sustainability. Any sacrifices made by marchers to avert the worst consequences of climate change are insignificant compared to the suffering that so many people across the globe are already experiencing as the climate continues to warm and our leaders do little or nothing.

The 25-50 climate patriots who marched each day for 246 days were willing to make this commitment - to go the extra mile, so to speak - to keep our planet livable for us, for other species and for future generations.

Now the work continues in communities across the country. On this page, we continue to lift up the work of these marchers, and the other important work happening coast to coast.
