March to End Fossil Fuels in NYC

September 17 @ 1:00 pm

Email [email protected] if you would like to be a WESPAC contingent that day so we can meet up at Grand Central or find a convenient meeting place close to the starting point!

On September 17th, we will hold the March to End Fossil Fuels in New York City calling on President Biden to stop fossil fuel expansion and extraction. The march will take place ahead of the UN Climate Ambition Summit – a first-of-its-kind meeting hosted by the United Nations Secretary-General (UNSG) Antonio Guterres, who is asking heads of state to come with concrete steps to keep fossil fuels in the ground. While the Biden administration continues to greenlight mega-polluting fossil fuel projects, we are mobilizing around the summit to leverage as much national and international pressure as possible to force Biden to change course. This is a critical moment for mass mobilization on fossil fuels that could move Biden before 2024. Are you in? Learn more at endfossilfuels.us.

Join the March to End Fossil Fuels in New York on September 17th,* 2023! With wildfire smoke choking the air we breathe, hurricanes and floods threatening our homes, and toxic pollution making us sick, it has never been more urgent to end our dependence on the leading cause of these crises – fossil fuels. 

In New York this September, the United Nations will gather world leaders for a first-of-its-kind Climate Ambition Summit to demand that nations stop developing new oil, gas and coal projects and begin phasing out fossil fuels once and for all. With his recent approvals for mega-polluting projects like the Willow Oil Drilling Project and the Mountain Valley Pipeline, President Biden must immediately reverse course to earn his seat at the table. But it will take all of us acting together to make sure he does.

This September, in the largest climate march since the pandemic, thousands will march in New York City to demand President Biden take bold action to End Fossil Fuels.

*We recognize this mobilization is planned for the second day of Rosh Hashanah. There were a number of factors that led us to choose this date, and we did not make this decision lightly. We deeply respect Jewish communities have different relationships with protest and social action during the High Holidays. We honor and affirm that many Jewish communities and organizations will be praying at this time and celebrate their observance.
