GENERAL DESCRIPTION:

On the 100th Day of the Trump Administration, while thousands are marching in Washington D.C. and across the United States, we will be marching in the streets of Philadelphia to show the world and our leaders that we will resist attacks on our people, our communities and our planet.

We will march in solidarity with the Climate March in Washington to demonstrate our power and resistance. We will bring attention to the climate crisis and to the related problems that affect our communities. We will send our message to the White House and to our leaders in Congress and we will demand action.

Donald Trump is a threat to the future of our planet, the safety of our communities, and the health of our families.

The new administration has attacked the hard-won protections of our climate, health, and communities, and the rights of people of color, workers, indigenous people, immigrants, women, LGBTQIA, young people, and more.

We've fought back with a wave of protests larger than at almost any other point in history — let's make sure that we mark the 100th day of his presidency with another mass action that stands up for our communities.
