Residents from the Sacramento region will converge on our State Capitol in Sacramento this Saturday April 29th at 11am for a climate rally and march in solidarity with gatherings centered in Washington DC with sister marches exploding worldwide.

We come together to show the world and our leaders that people at the city level will lead in the joyful, life affirming work of transitioning to climate friendly lifestyles. The future of our communities teeters on the edge of climate catastrophe, and we refuse to stand idly by and watch. We know the future is in our hands.

RSVP to ride your bike to the march. CLICK HERE!

RSVP to lnittler@sbcglobal.net to ride Yolobus 42B to the rally. If we can fill the bus it will go directly to the march without stops. Indicate a 9:43 or 10:43a.m. departure.
