EARTH DAY NYC 2017 Noon Rally to Stop Trump's Climate Agenda

STOP TRUMP’s CLIMATE AGENDA!
Join us on Earth Day for a noon rally at Foley Square to express our opposition to Trump’s climate agenda. Trump calls climate change a hoax. He has promised to reduce the environmental regulations that protect our air and water and to increase our reliance on coal, oil, and gas. To protect all living things on our planet, we must transition as quickly as possible from fossil fuels and nuclear power to a new, green economy based on renewable energy.
