This past Saturday, we joined more than 300,000 people in Washington, DC (and across the country) for the People’s Climate Movement – a demonstration of unity for jobs, justice, and climate action. The demonstration’s organizers casted a wide net to convey that climate change is deeply interwoven with traditional social justice issues like racial, gender and economic inequality. Much like the Women’s March, the signs were brilliant and the vibe was electric. Our favorite part was when the front of the march reached the White House, all 300K people sat down and pounded their chests or clapped their hands to symbolize one collective beating heart – it was a magical moment. Take a look at these highlights from the movement and the picture of our favorite sign below. If you participated, share your story with us here!
Here are a few other things we’ve been chatting about this week:
- If you’re a huge fan of Aziz Ansari like we are, we think you’ll be interested in this article on why his comedy ultimately went political.
- Avant-Garde is often used to define new or experimental concepts, especially in the arts. At Monday night’s Met Gala, the avant-garde theme was in full force, and we loved the bold & daring looks.
- Water has the power: to break the cycle of poverty, to protect and save lives, and to make a bright future possible. Find out here how you can put the power of water into the hands of those in need.
