Why Join the March?
From the vanishing glaciers in Montana to the damaged coral reefs of Florida; to sinking villages in Alaska and wild fire outbreaks in California, the impacts of global warming are a part of daily life across the United States. It is crucial that you join the March because the consequences of doing nothing are unimaginable.
It affects everyone. Young, old, rich, poor, urban, rural, right wing, left wing, those in the middle. Global warming is a national security problem, an economic problem, and a public health problem. And it's not going to get better unless we act now.
And so we need Americans from all regions and walks of life to join together and urge our leaders to take action to stop global warming. Leading scientists, political and religious leaders, prominent Americans and concerned citizens have joined but we can't achieve our goals without you. It is through our numbers and personal stories that we will spur our community, government and business leaders to take action against global warming.
We hope that you will join the March, and invite your family and friends to march with you.
As a Marcher, you will receive a personal page where you can tell your family and friends your reasons for marching, track your progress and ask others to join the March. You will also receive email updates on March stops, breaking news and ways that you can take action.
