WE RESIST! WE BUILD! WE RISE!

The new administration has attacked the hard-won freedoms and rights of the American people as well as the protections of our health and the health of our planet.

On the 100th Day of the Trump Administration, WE WILL BE MARCHING IN SOLIDARITY WITH THE PEOPLE’S CLIMATE MOVEMENT IN D.C.* FROM NIAGARA SQUARE TO CANALSIDE in Buffalo to show our leaders and the world that we will resist attacks on our people, our communities, and our planet.

  • In this solidarity we will march to:
    * Advance solutions to the climate crisis rooted in racial, social and economic justice, and committed to protecting front-line communities and workers.
    * Protect our right to clean air, water, land, healthy communities and a world at peace.
    * Immediately stop attacks on immigrants, communities of color, indigenous and tribal people and lands and workers.
    * Ensure public funds and investments create good paying jobs that provide a family-sustaining wage and benefits and preserve workers’ rights, including the right to unionize.
    * Fund investments in our communities, people and environment to transition to a new clean and renewable energy economy that works for all, not an economy that feeds the machinery of war.
    * Protect our basic rights to a free press, protest and free speech.
    here will be speakers and music at this event, too.
