People’s Climate March in Elgin, Illinois, Sunday, September 21st

Please join Fox Valley Citizens for Peace & Justice, for a People’s Climate March in Elgin, Illinois on Sunday, September 21st.


This event will be in sympathy and support of the HUGE Citizens Climate March which will be held on that day in New York City. There will be similar events all across the country.

Our goal is to draw awareness to the Climate Crisis and demand that our elected officials take action to halt greenhouse gas emissions. We will rally at Kimball Street and Grove Avenue at 3:30 PM. We will have signs and will distribute flyers to passers-by. Then we will walk with our signs to Highland Avenue Church of the Brethren, 783 W Highland Avenue to join a potluck supper. Feel free to bring your own sign or use one of ours.

Co-sponsors of this event so far include: Schweitzer House, Friends of the Fox River, Elgin Climate Change Organization, Unitarian Universalist Church of Elgin, Sierra  Club VOF , Elgin Green Groups, and IL Fox Valley Chapter of Citizens Climate Lobby. We encourage other organizations and individuals to join us.
