I'm here at Bread and Honey Market.
See YOU here.
10:30am @ 941 8th Ave. and 56th Street (Bread & Honey)
The march leaves at 11:30 - show up on Central Park West much earlier than that (think 10:00 am).
When you're sharing on social media, use the hashtag #peoplesclimate.
At 12:58, we're going to pause the march, link hands overhead, and have a moment of silence for those most impacted by climate change (text ALARM to 97779 to help us pull this off).At 1:00 we're going to break the silence by ringing the climate alarm. This is when you should make a lot of noise.It's going to be a fun day -- you'll want to stay hydrated. Bring water and snacks.
Hello, GCC Climate Marchers.
9/21 • NYC
JOIN THE LARGEST
We will be meeting at 10:30. This is 1-hour ahead of the official march start-time of 11:30. It will be very crowded near Columbus Circle so let's meet early and a few blocks away at 941 8th Ave. and 56th Street in front of Bread & Honey market-cafe. There are supplies there for those that do not bring water or snacks.
Bread & Honey is located at 941 8th Ave. @ 56th Street.
Please feel free to call or tweet me with questions, ideas and inspiration.

"This is an invitation to change everything.
In September, world leaders are coming to New York City for a UN summit on the climate crisis. UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon is urging governments to support an ambitious global agreement to dramatically reduce global warming pollution.
Our future is on the line and the whole world will be watching. Green City Challenge joins 850 organization large and small; taking a stand to bend the course of history. We take to the streets to demand the world we know is within our reach: a world with an economy that works for people and the planet; a world safe from the ravages of climate change; a world with good jobs, clean air and water, and healthy communities.
To change everything, we need everyone on board."
