People’s Climate March—Ketchum

On the 100th day of the new administration, let’s join people across the nation in showing our elected representatives that we take climate change seriously.

Climate change threatens the Idaho we love and the world around us. The 2017 Idaho legislative session made it clear that many representatives in Idaho don’t take climate change seriously. Let’s show them that Idahoans care about climate, clean air and water too!

Bring your friends, families, neighbors, and your most colorful signs, banners and flags to help us build the climate community in Central Idaho. The march will begin at Ketchum Town Square and end at City Hall. But the fun doesn’t stop, before the march hear from

• Michelle Stennett, Senate minority leader

• Brygitte Delacruz and Analema Deklotz, students at the Community School

• Dani Mazzotta, Central Idaho director for Idaho Conservation League

All of these speakers will speak about common-ground solutions to climate change. They will take us on a journey around the globe and inspire hope for building bridges, political will, and change that leads to a livable world.

You can also visit booths for local organizations to see what they are doing to fight climate change locally and learn about how you can take action. Speeches will start at 11 am and the march will begin at 11:30 am.

Stay tuned for more details as the event approaches.
