Thanks to everyone who participated in our #ForwardOnClimate Solidarity March & Rally!

You made it A HUGE SUCCESS!

On February 17th, nearly 50,000 people from around the country converged on Washington, DC to demand that President Obama take strong action on climate change and stop the Keystone XL pipeline. Here in Colorado, we also hosted a #ForwardonClimate Solidarity March and Rally in Denver with over 1,000 participants!

people_greater_than_oilWe kicked it off with a student-led “Go Fossil Free” rally, then marched as a human pipeline to Civic Center Park. There we converged with other groups for a mass “human oil spill” and rally, with awesome speakers like James Balog of “Chasing Ice”, Auden Schendler of Aspen Skiing Company, Taryn and Cheyenne from Idle No More, Jodee Brekke of The Mothers Project and Protect Our Colorado, Rev. Peter Sawtell of Eco-Justice Ministries, Mark Chavez of GoFossilFree.org campaigns across Colorado and more!    Thanks to our emcee Xiuhtezcatl Roske-Martinez, the 12-year-old leader of the Earth Guardians youth group, who also performed with other members of the groups performance group.  And thanks to other awesome performers including Jonny 5 of the Flobots, Laura Holdhammer, and DJ Cavem!

We’ll keep calling for fossil fuel divestment on college campuses, demanding a clean energy future, and standing up to oppose extreme energy projects like the Keystone XL pipeline.
