WHY WE MARCH…

STAND UP FOR HEALTHY SoCal! WE MUST SUPPORT our local neighborhoods in Wilmington, Carson, Long Beach, San Pedro, and more with the worst air quality in the United States. Say NO to sacrifice zones! Say NO to environmental racism where multinational oil companies profit while communities must bear the burden of contamination, illness, noise, and risks of explosions and spills.
RESIST THE WEST COAST TAR SANDS/BAKKEN CRUDE OIL INVASION! Standing Rock Really is Everywhere, and through a mix of leaky pipelines, exploding oil trains, risky tanker ships, the Trump Administration, led by his fossil fueled cabinet, plans to ship THE DIRTIEST CRUDE IN THE WORLD into OUR Los Angeles Harbor for storage and processing, then to be exported to the world, irreparably advancing destabilization of the global climate.
STOP THE TESORO-BP REFINERY MERGER! Big Oil’s plans to get bigger would create the largest DIRTY oil processing facility on the West Coast, doubling crude storage tanks for 3.4 million barrels, using caustic and carcinogenic chemicals with explosion and toxic release risks, and deficient environmental review by the South Coast Air Quality Management District.
We must break this deadly addiction to crude oil and transition NOW to an equitable and sustainable 100% clean renewable energy economy with better jobs and healthier communities.

History of the People’s Climate Movement
Over two years ago on 9/20/14, Hundreds of Los Angelenos took to the streets in solidarity with 400,000 in New York to demand a world with an economy that works for people and the planet, safe from the ravages of climate change, with good jobs, clean air and water, and healthy communities.
We demanded that President Barack Obama take action for climate justice. Workers, students, human rights leaders, frontline communities, Indigenous communities: we acted together to send a message so powerful and unified the world could not ignore it. And neither could President Obama. He listened [if not close enough], and he began to lead. Now, Donald Trump’s election threatens the future of our planet, the safety of our communities, and the health of our families.
Facing the looming threat of a President who denies the reality of climate change, and openly attacks women, people of color, immigrants, Muslims, people with disabilities, LGBTQ people, workers, and so many more, we need to stand up and take action to protect everything and everyone we love.
Just before the 100th day of the Trump Administration, people will come together for a massive march in Washington, D.C., and, once again, we’ll be marching right here in Southern California. We will march for our families. We will march for our air, our water, and our land. We will march for clean energy jobs and climate justice. We will march for our communities and the people we love. And we will be louder and stronger than ever before.
