The Great March for Climate Action

The Great March for Climate Action

The Time for Action is NOW!

The Mission

The mission of the Great March for Climate Action is to inspire action on the climate crisis. On March 1, 2014, hundreds of climate patriots set out from Los Angeles, California, and are now walking nearly 3,000 miles across America to Washington, DC. This will be the largest coast-to-coast climate march in American history.


On March 1, 2014, hundreds of climate patriots will set out from Los Angeles, CA, walking 3,000 miles across America to Washington, DC, inspiring action to resolve the climate crisis. This will be one of the largest coast-to-coast marches in American history.

Marchers will be expected to adhere to a strict code of non-violence according to the principles employed by Martin Luther King, Jr. and Mahatma Gandhi. An addendum that explains this in greater detail will be provided before the march starts next year. Also, we will provide mandatory non-violence training at the start of the March.

The March seeks to build the broadest possible public consensus and is focused strictly on the climate crisis. Marchers will, of course, have their own personal stories and perspectives. However, it is important that we stick to the core message, in unison, with our words, signs and public presentations.

We plan to govern the March through a "city council" of marchers elected by marchers. At times, we will employ a "town meeting" style of governance involving the entire marcher community, with a simple majority vote to make a decision.
