Be Part of History – Join the Largest Climate March in Los Angeles History!

Break Free Los Angeles, SoCal 350

On May 14, 2016 Californians from across the state will taking part in a global wave of resistance to keep fossil fuels in the ground and accelerate the just transition to 100% renewable energy!

We will convene in Downtown Los Angeles, the city that is home to the nation’s largest urban oil field in the country. There will be buses of concerned citizens coming from all over the state. (See transportation options below.) We will demand that our elected leaders put an end to the oil and gas production that threatens people’s health, environment, and future. If California wants to uphold its legacy as a global climate and human rights leader, then we must keep oil and gas in the ground as we work toward establishing a 100% clean energy future.

What: March to Break Free from Fossil Fuels: Our Health, Our Communities, Our Climate

When: Saturday, May 14 at 1:00pm

Where: Downtown Los Angeles (We’ll gather for a rally at City Hall at 1PM, followed by a march through the streets of Downtown L.A.)

Climate justice is fundamentally an issue of racial justice, inextricably linked to health, housing, and human rights. This is our chance to bring together the diverse voices of those affected by fossil fuel’s stronghold on California. We will stand together to show that our health, our communities, and our climate are more important than the profits of a greedy industry.
