Dear PCM Partners-
We are fully in the home stretch now, but we still need your help to make Sunday as amazing an experience for everyone involved as we all know it can be. To that end, we’re writing today with two requests that we know will help make the People’s Climate March go off with as few hitches as possible.
First, we’re asking you to bring some flexibility and patience along with your smiles, enthusiasm, signs and chants on Sunday. Simple enough, right?
The good news is that we are now confident we’ll have a huge crowd at the march. It’s going to be an amazing scene full of solidarity, fellowship, activism, and determination. But with a crowd of the size we’re expecting, it may also seem a bit chaotic at times. That’s OK.
Despite all our efforts, things may change on the day of the march in ways we can’t quite predict. Your contingent may not march exactly where we thought it would, and not everyone is going to get to march with the people they thought they would. But as long as everyone is safe and marching together for climate justice, we’re confident we’ll all have a great time and make an impact.
Afterall, what’s the worst that can happen? You get to meet some new friends, march with a group you may not have otherwise gotten to know…and you still get to make history with us.
So our request of you is to be, calm, patient and flexible on Sunday. Things may go exactly as planned, or more likely they’ll change up a bit. Either way, we’ll make history together. These are good problems to have.
Second, we need more volunteers! That means you and all your friends!

There’s been an amazing amount of work and effort put into making this a historic event, but we won’t be able to make this work without volunteers to help it run smoothly (if slightly chaotically). If you’ve been wondering how you can help make this march a success – this is it.
You don’t have to have any experience volunteering at an event like this – we’ll give you all the information you need to make sure you’re an important part of the team on the day of the march.
To make sure you have all the information you need, we’re holding volunteer trainings Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday evenings. You’ll hear about the plan for the day, the roles that are needed, and meet the other people volunteering to help make the People’s Climate March a success.
Click here to sign up for a training.
The trainings are:
- Wednesday, September 17th – 6:00-8:30pm
- Thursday, September 18th – 6:00-8:30pm
- Friday, September 19th – 6:00-8:30pm
All trainings will be held on the 3rd Floor, room D, at TWU Local 100, 195 Montague St, Brooklyn, NY 11201
We’ll be in touch soon with more details, undoubtedly. In the meantime, thanks for your support, your energy, and your flexibility!
4 more days!
