March to End Fossil Fuels
Join us on Sunday, September 17th in NYC for the March to #EndFossilFuels!
The United Nations is calling on world leaders to take real steps to lead us off fossil fuels to protect people and the planet. The UN Climate Ambition Summit in New York will gather world leaders to commit to phasing out fossil fuels. Thousands of us will take to the streets before the summit to demand President Biden take bold action to end fossil fuels.
Together, Divest Princeton, Princeton Student Climate Initiative, Princeton Environmental Activism Coalition, Princeton YDSA, EcoReps, and Rewild Princeton are taking the train on Sunday morning at 9:30am. There, we’ll join thousands of people to march for a more sustainable future – and you’re invited!

We’re also hosting an 🎨 art build on Friday, September 15 at 7pm in Whig Hall Senate Chamber to make signs for the march. Even if you can't come to the march, we'd love to have your help making signs! Bring markers and paint if you have any!
