The People's Climate March

Sign up for a bus to join the People's Climate March on September 21st in NYC!

We are at a tipping point in the fight to halt climate change.

Clean energy is becoming cheaper than dirty fuels, but policymakers in the US and around the world continue to keep us chained to coal, fracking, dirty oil and nuclear power. We need to inspire with real solutions to reduce climate pollution.

That’s why a broad coalition of over 100 (and counting) different organizations are coming together on September 21st in New York before the UN Climate Summit with the goal of having 250,000 people marching together to show both solidarity and to reignite the environmental movement at a critical time.

This is the People’s Climate March.

The theme of the UN Climate Summit is "Catalyzing Action," and that's exactly what we mean to do. If you never went to another march, this is the one to go to now. We're going to make history in NY, and we’re asking you to be there with us.

Our goal is to get 25,000 people to represent the Sierra Club at the People’s Climate March, making it the largest-ever Sierra Club gathering in our 125-year history. We have a whole city block reserved for us in NYC!

  • The Maryland Sierra Club is organizing buses from all over MD that anyone can join. Follow the links below for more details on each bus and to buy your ticket today:

    • The march will line up between 86th and 59th on Central Park West, just north of Columbus Circle. This may seem like a bunch of blocks to walk to get to the start of the march but, b/c there’ll be so many people and activities going on, we need this whole space to convene. Trust us, it’s going to be fun!

    • The march will end around 3:30pm with a great celebration. MD buses will leave by 5:30pm and will not wait.
