Our Mission


OUR MISSION — The Great March for Climate Action is a community of people walking across the country, from Los Angeles to Washington D.C., to raise awareness and inspire action on the climate crisis. As we walk across the nation we collaborate with frontline communities, activist organizations, and individuals from all walks of life to address local environmental and climate concerns. Every day on the march we learn lessons from the earth and from the people we meet, many of whom are directly impacted by climate change and have already begun implementing solutions. Our work is to amplify their voices to evoke systematic change. You can visit us online at climatemarch.org or meet us in person in New York City (see below), or join us after the march as keep on trekking through Ohio (Toledo, Cleveland), Pennsylvania (Pittsburgh), Maryland, and of course Washington, D.C.

Organizing a Week of Resistance to Fossil Fuel Infrastructure

The GMCA is part of the Beyond Extreme Energy Coalition, with whom we are organizing a week of nonviolent direct actions in Washington, D.C. for when we arrive there the first week of November. We’ll be sharing about our plans, and working with you to plan actions you might take against fossil fuel infrastructure where you live the same week. This is part of the Climate Convergence – register here.
