Washington D.C. Rally for Climate Action Day
FORWARD on Climate Change Rally

On February 17, thousands of Americans went to Washington, D.C. to make Forward on Climate the largest climate rally in histor tp make their voices heard and help the president start his second term with strong climate action. From rejecting the toxic Keystone XL tar sands pipeline to firing up our clean energy economy, Barack Obama's legacy as president will rest squarely on his response, resolve, and leadership in solving the climate crisis. That's why the Forward On Climate Rally featured critical action, inspiring speakers, and a march to the president's doorstep to show him that we can't afford to wait any longer.

We have upcoming events such as hiking, bowling, movie night & more! Exact Dates & Times of events will be sent out via our Young Sierrans list serve.
