Moms Clean Air Force plans to join Climate March in Washington in April 2017

The Trump administration has vowed to put the health of families in danger by implementing policies that undermine our right to clean air. According to the New York Times,

“Mr. Trump has called human-caused climate change a “hoax.” He has vowed to dismantle the Environmental Protection Agency “in almost every form.”

Millions of women – many of them mothers and grandmothers – marched to protect women’s rights. Now we must stay mobilized to protect children’s health and this gorgeous planet we call home.

In President Obama’s farewell address, he said:

“It falls to each of us to be those anxious jealous guardians of our democracy; to embrace the joyous task we’ve been given to continually try to improve this great nation of ours.”

On Saturday, April 29th, 2017 we invite you join Moms Clean Air Force at the March on Washington for Climate,

“…as we come together for one massive march to bring our demands to the streets of Washington, D.C. We will march for our families. 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 the people we love. And we will be louder and stronger than ever before.”

Moms Clean Air Force is an official partner of The People’s Climate Movement, which is a project of dozens of organizations working together to solve the climate crisis.

Climate change is undeniably a women’s issue…and climate change is a children’s health issue.

We will succeed together. We’re counting on you.

Please march with us! (Tweet this)
