More than 300,000 people turned out to march for jobs, justice, and the climate this weekend. Were you one of them?

On day 100 of the Trump administration, more than 200,000 people came to Washington, DC to march for jobs, justice, and the climate with the Peoples Climate March.

On day 100 of the Trump administration, we the people took back power in a big way.

In more than 370 cities across the country — with 200,000 people showing up in Washington, DC alone — we took a public stand against Trump and the climate-denying fossil fuel CEOs that put him in office.

We marched for jobs — for an end to the fossil fuel economy that pollutes our climate at the expense of working class communities of color. We marched for justice — for a transition to the clean power of the future that leaves no one behind. And we marched for the climate — for clean energy, climate-resilient cities, and equitable development.

And today, on May Day, we take that energy we built for the climate and continue it in solidarity with workers and migrants fighting for labor justice.

And it’s a good thing we’ve got the momentum on our side, because we’re going to need it. Late last week, Trump signed two executive orders that could open protected areas to oil and gas drilling. These senseless attacks on our air, water, and climate make our resistance even more urgent.
