People’s Climate March (including a PA IPL bus from Philly)
September 21, 2014 @ 7:30 AM - 8:00 PM
Hundreds of thousands of people —including many acting specifically as people of faith—will gather in New York City on Sunday, September 21 for the People’s Climate March. By our presence, we will demand action on a meaningful treaty for a sustainable climate, delivering a powerful visual message at a critical time to delegates assembled at the United Nations, and to our nation at large. People will come from all over the country, with many state IPLs represented. EVEN IF YOU CAN’T BE THERE IN PERSON, you can sign this petition, which will also take you to an excellent pledge to action.
You can try to register for PA IPL’s same-day bus from Philadelphia, or if we’re full, put your name on the waiting list at the same signup page. (Our list is now constantly in flux as we get cancellations and call folks on the waiting list, but if you’re on the list, you’ll get called in order!)
Mishkan Shalom is adding a second bus, which you can learn more about here. 350.org buses will leave from many states and regions. Friends at the Thomas Merton Center in Pittsburgh are sending a bus from there. Registration for the Pittsburgh bus over at the TMC page.[edited: those buses are all full, too!]
The Faith Contingent (from all over the country) is meeting at 58th between 8th and 9th. Look for PA IPL banners in the crowd, and enjoy song and a variety of prayers. Link to download a PDF of song lyrics people in the faith organizers list have suggested: PCM Song Sheet (Avoid litter: use it on your device, or just sing along on the choruses!) Many, many, many faith traditions and denominations will have signs, too, if you want to try to find your own. We can be on the lookout for you if you let us know you’re coming.
