Join Climate March in Centennial Park

As part of a global day of action, the Southwest Florida People’s Climate March will be held at 2 p.m., September 8, in Centennial Park, in downtown Fort Myers. Led locally by Anthony Amedure of Rise for Climate, it will be one of thousands of rallies taking place worldwide to demand that local leaders commit to building a fossil-free world and renewable energy that works for all of us.

“Together, we can make governments, institutions and corporations divest from fossil fuel,” says Bill McKibben, longtime environmental advocate and Sanders Institute Founding Fellow. “Together, we can elect candidates who vow to keep carbon in the ground. And together, we can use our collective voice to move our local communities, states and nation to 100 percent renewable energy.”

The Action Network is an open platform that empowers individuals and groups to organize for progressive causes.

Location: 2000 W. First St. For more information, visit ActionNetwork.org or RiseForClimate.org.
