#TakeAction: People’s Climate March

Last Sunday, I had the invigorating honor of marching down 6th Avenue and through Times Square with about 400,000 (4x more than expected) activists. Of  those 400,000 voices, thousands were students, and 4 were Teens Turning Green leaders.

There are a lot of things a college student could do with their Sunday. They could study, stay in bed with their eyes glued to Netflix, or eat a trendy brunch. College students have been revolutionaries for decades, but I’m particularly proud of my generation of 20-somethings.

I see the People’s Climate March as a wake up call and warning that aware Americans will not sit back and let science-deniers kill our climate. Climate change is real and happening, right now. The solution? More change. Americans and others who eat, drink and breathe around the world need to begin to take responsibility for our impact on the environment. This march calls for cleaner energy sources, stricter pollution regulations and full confrontation of our responsibility to the planet.

Here is the People’s Climate March through my lens…

When you have the opportunity, march. March for the climate, for the future and raise your voice and your vote for causes you believe in. Here are some other resources on where to go from here. Start a conversation, change your habits and empower others to do the same.

Change the World. Please and Thank you.                  – Jenna xx

  1. Thanks to you that went their + i reached out to many via other channels + would like also to share w/you that we have many solutions if we live local + in solidarity share what works.

    i`m working today to try to upload some documents to help us better understand this as we come together + link, sharing the process of living local w/only localized systems of alternative energy w/low impact, not large grid farms of solar or wind, etc. for they interfere in our ability to self sustain w/our natural world. so we have a plan to trigger you to do your local `plan as you downscale + become aware of working within respect for the natural rule of law.

    come aboard, reflect + link, for many are w/misinformation.

    thanks for what you do, kara
