Take Action for a Fossil-Free Future on September 17th in New York City. Let's raise our voices together and demand an End to Fossil Fuels!

About this event

Join us on September 17th, as we march in New York City to demand that Washington and Wall Street take bold action to End Fossil Fuels.

The United Nations will gather world leaders in New York City for a first-of-its-kind the Climate Ambition Summit on September 20, 2023 to accelerate climate action, including demand that nations stop developing new oil, gas and coal projects and begin phasing out fossil fuels once and for all. This is part of Climate Week NYC where thousands of government officials, business leaders, and civil society will be gathering. 

Third Act Working Groups are heading up our involvement: Third Act NYC, Third Act Upstate NY, Third Act Retired Union Workers, Third Act Creatives, Third Act Ohio, and more. Calling all Third Actors near and far – and especially those in the New York area – join us! There will be an Elders Hub, together with Elders Climate Action, and we will back-up youth organizers that are leading the organizing of this march.

For the Elders Hub, please meet at: Broadway and West 55th St.  (subject to change). Please visit this page closer to the date for updates on the meeting spot, or contact Pat Almonrode at palmonrode@gmail.com.

This march focuses on calling on President Biden to declare a climate emergency, and is also an opportunity to raise our voices to call on all nations and on all business leaders and banks to recognize and declare a climate emergency and to act on this emergency by ending expansion of fossil fuels and accelerating a just transition to clean energy and healthy communities.
