In conjunction with a People’s March for Climate, Jobs and Justice to be held in Washington, D.C., a local People’s Climate March and Rally will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, April 29, on the Sonoma Plaza.

Those wishing to march to the Plaza rally location in front of City Hall can meet either at Burlingame Hall, on the campus of First Congregational Church/Congregation Shir Shalom, at 252 W. Spain St., or in front of Sonoma Valley High School, 20000 Broadway, where marchers will set out from both locations at 10:30 a.m. toward the Plaza.

The Peoples Climate March in Washington, D.C., was initiated by 350.org, and has grown into “a broad-based ground-breaking coalition of hundreds of faith-based, labor unions, indigenous, civil rights and environmental justice groups based around the country working together to build bold solutions that tackle climate change, rooted in economic and racial justice.”

The march in Washington, D.C., along with myriad marches around the country, is scheduled for the 100th day of the Trump presidency who has recently issued executive orders designed to rollback many of the advances in climate protection set forth under the Obama administration.

May Boeve, executive director of 350.org and former resident of Sonoma, said “we’re taking our vision and our resistance to Washington … with people from every corner of the country who are ready to keep fighting for our future.”

The local March is sponsored by the newly-formed, Sonoma Climate Coalition, which came together from a cross section of local groups and individuals to plan the PCM-Sonoma March/Rally and thereafter to keep climate issues in the forefront of conversation and action in the Sonoma Valley and beyond. For more information about the Sonoma Climate Coalition or about the April 29, PCM-Sonoma on the Plaza contact Tim Boeve at tboeve@comcast.net. Other Bay Area marches are planned for Santa Rosa, Napa Valley, Marin County and the East Bay.
