People's Climate March - Delaware Buses
Sat, April 29, 2017, 8:00 AM – 8:00 PM EDT
On April 29th in Washington, DC we'll show the new administration and Congress that we won't let them pollute our air and wreck the climate on our watch!
There is no denying it: Donald Trump’s election is a threat to the future of our planet, the safety of our communities, and the health of our families. If the policies he proposed on the campaign trail are implemented, they will destroy our climate, decimate our livelihoods, and undermine our hard-won civil rights. It’s up to us to stop that from happening--and luckily we have people on our side. Please join us and invite your friends to what we expect to be the largest climate rally ever!
Bus tickets will be $35/person, which will include gratuity, tolls and bus fees. If you can, please consider donating the cost of an extra bus ticket for someone who can't afford it (or donate any amount toward the "scholarship fund"). If you want to attend the march, but the bus is cost-prohibitive, please contact Stephanie about sponsored tickets. Kids are welcome on the buses and at the march as long as they are accompanied by a responsible adult (and a signed waiver). Please be mindful of the fact that this will be a fun, wonderful empowering but also very long day with a lot of walking and standing. We want the event to be as inclusive as possible, but please take note and be realistic about your physical abilities and those of anyone accompanying you.
A few specific final details are still in the process of being worked out by the D.C. organizers and will be updated soon. As the event gets nearer we will be in touch with everyone who signed up for the buses via email with final details and what to bring. We have four buses reserved from northern DE*. We're planning to have two buses pick up in Newark from the UD Trabant Center (17 W. Main St.) and two in Wilmington from First Unitarian (730 Halstead Rd. Wilmington). Check your preferred pick up location when you buy your ticket.
Please reserve your ticket TODAY! These buses will sell out; by reserving your ticket now you are guaranteeing yourself a seat AND it really helps us with the planning. Thank you!
* We are also working closely with volunteers planning a bus from Lewes, DE to the march! Tickets for that bus are also $35. To reserve your space on the Lewes bus please email Trish and Carole.
