From the Rockaways to DC!

After hurricane Sandy, New Yorkers came together to occupy the biggest climate change disaster to ever hit our city.

This Sunday, February 17th, Americans across the country are coming together in Washington, DC for the biggest climate change rally ever.

There, we will call out the cause of Sandy: The fossil fuel industry, projects like the Keystone XL Tar Sands Pipeline, and the 1%’s control of global environmental policies.
