There are several different bodies that are convening to collaborate on the People’s Climate March, including local New York-area community groups, international NGO’s, grassroots networks, churches and faith organizations, and many more. You can see a list of participating organizations here.
Because this is a “movement of movements” moment, the People’s Climate March is being organized in a participatory, open-source model. This means that there isn’t a central “decision-making” body or single coalition. Rather, groups and individuals are collaborating with some basic shared agreements around respect, collaboration, trust, and many are using the Jemez Principles of Environmental Justice.
Instead, there are a number of “tables” and working groups where organizations and individuals are coming together to engage with the summit.
This September is going to be a success because of the work we all do together – not because of any one person or organization. Take the initiative to organize your community, your school, your workplace, and your neighbors.
