WE RESIST.    WE BUILD.    WE RISE.

Healthy People, Healthy Community, Healthy Earth
Join our contingent to march for jobs, justice and the climate

Saturday, April 29, 10 am – 2 pm

Waterfront Park, County Administrative Building

The event will kick off at 10 am with a rally at Waterfront Park.  Speakers include Assembly member Lorena Gonzalez Fletcher, San Diego Councilman David Alvarez, and Rev. J. Lee Hill, Jr., Senior Pastor of the Christian Fellowship Congregational Church (United Church of Christ).  Live music, a Native American ceremony, and a Kid’s Zone with games and face-painting will be featured.   The opening speeches will be followed by a short loop march, and after regrouping at the park, additional speakers and a call to action.  The event will conclude with live performances, information booths, and other activities.

Sierra Club Executive Director Michael Brune: “On April 29th, it’s going to be much clearer to Donald Trump that he won’t drag America or the world backwards on climate without the fight of his life. Our planet is in crisis, and voices from around the nation must and will be heard.”

A coalition of environmental, social justice and human rights groups are joining together to let our voices be heard.  Join Sierra Club San Diego in marching to stop the Trump administration from unraveling the hard-won protections of our climate, health, and communities, and the rights of people of color, workers, indigenous people, immigrants, women, LGBTQIA, and young people.

There is no denying it: Donald Trump’s election is a threat to the future of our planet, the safety of our communities, and the health of our families.  If the policies he proposed on the campaign trail are implemented, they will destroy our climate, decimate our jobs and livelihoods, and undermine the civil rights and liberties won in many hard fought battles.

It’s up to us to stop that from happening before it starts.  RSVP here to stand with us.

Our fights are tied together, and we will only succeed together. That’s why, from now through the first 100 days and beyond, we are taking action and standing up for everything and everyone we love — and we are calling on everyone to join us on April 29th; for a massive march to bring our demands to the streets of San Diego.

We’re ready to fight back, and we are ready to build a resistance to Trump and Congress’ attacks on our climate, our communities, and our jobs that stands alongside the unprecedented Women’s Marches and other powerful rallies that shook the globe in the hours and days following the inauguration of Donald Trump and the 115th Congress.

On April 29th, we will march for healthy people, healthy community and a healthy earth. We will march for our air, our water, and our land. We will march for clean energy jobs and climate justice. We will march for our communities and work together for a rapid, just transition to 100% clean energy as we continue to support each other’s efforts to create a more just San Diego.

Join us here.
