This event is part of a 350.org international day of action in support of moving away from fossil fuels and toward a clean energy future. We aim at demonstrating the strength of the climate movement and showing decision makers that the climate crisis must not be ignored. We plan to gather at the corner of East 40th Street and 5th Avenue at 12:30 pm. At 1:00 pm, we plan to start marching down East 40th Street, turn left on Third Avenue to march past Governor Cuomo’s Manhattan office, walk uptown on Third Avenue, turn right on East 47th Street to Second Avenue and join the rally at the Dag Hammarskjold Plaza on 47th Street between 1st and 2nd Avenues in Manhattan from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm. Renowned climate scientist Dr. James Hansen is one of the scheduled speakers at the rally.
