Join the ‘Peace Hub’ of the People’s Climate March

On April 29, the People’s Climate March will shake Washington. Sister marches will span cities across the US, and around the globe. Peace and justice activists everywhere will raise our voices together to say: “Stop the Wars, Save the Planet!” UFPJ has been organizing with the Peace Hub of the People’s Climate March– a coalition of national and local peace organizations that make the connections between militarism and the climate crisis. Founded in 2014 for NYC People’s Climate March, we had our own march contingent and rally, as we will this year, because:
  • We cannot effectively address climate change without ending war and militarism
  • We cannot end war without ending the fossil fuel energy system that breeds both the climate crisis and war
Below, please find information on how we can raise the essential issues of peace and climate, together. We hope to see you in the streets!

Save the Date for the Women’s March to Ban the Bomb

Throughout June and July of 2017, governments will negotiate the ban on nuclear weapons at the United Nations. WILPF and our coalition are hitting the streets to celebrate and also demand a good treaty that prohibits these weapons of mass destruction once and for all! The Women’s March Ban the Bomb is a women-led initiative building on the momentum of movements at the forefront of the resistance, including the Women’s March on Washington. It will bring together people of all genders, sexual orientations, ages, races, abilities, nationalities, cultures, faiths, political affiliations and backgrounds to march and rally at 12 PM -4PM Saturday, June 17th 2017 in New York City!
