Blog by Cherie: Ottawa's Climate March

This past two weeks I had the honour to organize the Ottawa chapter of the People's Climate March. We marched to make our voices heard on climate, clean energy, jobs and social justice. Now, we face a new challenge: Trump’s commitment to dismantle structures in the U.S. for climate action and environmental protection. We need to show that we stand with our neighbours and that we believe in the swift transition to a sustainable, clean energy economy.

We can no longer stay silent on infringement of basic human rights and freedom. This is about speaking up for people and our planet who do not have a voice. We stand together to resist fear-driven politics, to embrace diversity and inclusivity. 

Thank you for everyone who came out! It was an honour holding this march!
Let's stand up, fight back, and save the world!
