With our future on the line and the whole world watching, we’ll take a stand to bend the course of history. We’ll take to the streets to demand the world we know is within our reach:  a world with an economy that works for people and the planet; a world safe from the ravages of climate change; a world with good jobs, clean air and water, and healthy communities.

Disruption_Climate.Change_Watch-NOW

When it comes to Climate Change, why do we do so little when we know so much?

 Disruption lays bare the science, the shattered political process, the industry special interests and the civic paralysis that have brought us to this social, moral and ecological crossroads.

This is the story of our unique moment in history. We are the first generation to feel the impacts of climate disruption, and scientists say that we are the last generation that can do something about it.

The film also takes us behind-the-scenes of the efforts to organize the People’s Climate March, which promises to be the largest climate rally in the history of the planet.

Watch Disruption, share it with your friends, then Sign up for the bus to the People’s Climate March!

The March Route 

march route

Assembly Location: in the area north of Columbus Circle Sierra Club marchers should assemble on Central Park West between 75th and 77th (two blocks between 75th and 76th and between 76th and 77th) starting from 10am. This is just south of the Natural History Museum. The march starts at 11:30am and we expect our contingent to start moving at noon or later. Please enter Central Park West from Columbus Avenue along 77th street (south side of the Natural History Museum) or from the subway station at 81st Street (Subway lines B&C).

Assembly is possible as early as 8am but there should be no need to assemble any earlier than 10am (it’s going to be a long day). At around 11am we are planning a small “mini-rally” hosted by Sierra Student Coalition’s Karissa Gerhke and Bo Ra and featuring Michael Brune, David Scott and a few speakers and guests.  Sierra Club’s central assembly point is within the “We Have Solutions” block of the march and our planned mini-rally will be taking place at that location. Full line up details at: http://peoplesclimate.org/lineup/

March Route: 
– leave Columbus Circle and go east on 59th Street
– turn onto 6th Ave. and go south to 42nd Street
– turn right onto 42nd Street and go west to 11th Ave
– turn left on 11th Ave. and go south to 34th Street

End Location: on 11th Ave. in the streets between 34th Street and 38th Street

What to Bring to the March Most importantly, bring everyone you know! Help make this the largest call for climate justice imaginable!

Bring things that help communicate the message:
– Make your own signs and banners and t-shirts and flags – be creative
– Carry signs or banners that let people know where you are from – what organization, what city or state, what country
– Remember: only cardboard tubing or string can be used to carry signs, banners, flags, etc.
– Music that does not need amplification is encouraged

Items to bring that will make your day more comfortable:
– Bring some light food and drinks…it will be a long day
– Wear comfortable shoes
– Check the weather predictions a day or two before you come and dress appropriately
– If it’s going to be a sunny day, bring sun-screen

What NOT to Bring to the March

- Do not bring any amplified sound systems.
– Do not bring signs, banners or flags that are carried on wooden sticks or metal rods, only cardboard tubing or string is allowed.
– Do not weigh yourself down with unnecessary clothing or other items that you will have to carry all day long…travel lightly.

THE PEOPLE’S CLIMATE MARCH, to be held in NYC on September 21, 2014, calls for climate justice and a world with renewable energy, good jobs, clean air, healthy communities for all, and an Earth safe from the ravages of ongoing climate change.  Sierra Club Niagara Group and a coalition of regional environmental and social justice organizations and students have secured three buses to go to New York City to join the biggest climate rally ever!  The PEOPLE’S CLIMATE MARCH is scheduled to coincide with the gathering of world leaders for a UN summit on the earth climate crisis.  The UN Secretary General is urging governments to support an ambitious global agreement to dramatically reduce global warming.

More than 550 local, national and international organizations are participating including Sierra Club, NRDC, and 350.org.  Leaders are expecting thousands of people from across the United States to attend to raise the voices of this country to support meaningful action. We join others who are calling for a world economy that works for people and the planet!
