Western MD Bus to People’s Climate March

April 29 @ 5:30 am - 8:00 pm

Come with the Sierra Club and friends from Annapolis to D.C. for the People’s Climate March!

On April 29 a broad movement of environmental and climate justice, labor, student, and social change organizations are coming to Washington, D.C. to demonstrate a continued and growing public demand for action on combating climate disruption.

Donald Trump and his band of climate deniers in his Cabinet and in the Congress want to turn the country back to a reliance on climate disrupting dirty fossil fuels by killing the Clean Power Plan and the Paris Climate Accord. But the people in this country, and around the world, aren’t buying it and are prepared to take to the streets to demand continued action on climate change and safe and healthy communities for all.

DETAILS
We will be meeting at the Ci Cis Pizza Parking Lot. 12101 Winchester Road #31 LaVale, MD 21502

Bus Organizer: Jessica Wise 301-697-5609

Cost is $15 per ticket (thanks to the Sierra Club for subsidizing the tickets)

The bus will return to the pick-up locations in the late evening of April 29th. Times TBA. Times are subject to change but, no worries – it won’t be drastic!

In addition to getting a bus ticket, we also ask that you sign the general sign-up for the March to receive other updates and info at http://www.sierraclub.org/peoples-climate-march

All riders must travel round trip (don’t want to waste a seat).

You will need to purchase a roundtrip metro card to get from the RFK stadium to the National Mall and back.

Riders must sign a standard waiver to participate and minors must be accompanied by a parent or guardian who will need to sign an additional waiver for the minor. Click on these links to preview the standard waiver, minor waiver and minor medical release forms.

Sierra Club transportation starts and stops with the buses, though we can advise on public transportation. Passengers are responsible for getting to and from pick up and drop of points
