Join 350 NH on our trip to the Peoples Climate March in Washington DC.

Why we are marching.

Our climate is under attack by an administration filled with climate deniers and fossil fuel executives. It is our duty to step up and defend our climate for fellow humans around the world who are already facing the impacts of sea level rise, water scarcity, and extreme weather. We are demanding our politicians keeps fossil fuels in the ground and start taking the necessary steps towards a just transition.

Women's March to Ban the Bomb!

12:00 pm - 2:00 pm @ New York City

In one of its final acts of 2016, the United Nations General Assembly adopted with overwhelming support a landmark resolution to begin negotiations on a treaty prohibiting nuclear weapons. This historic decision heralds an end to two decades of paralysis in multilateral nuclear disarmament efforts.

Throughout June and July of 2017, governments will negotiate the ban on nuclear weapons at the United Nations. WILPF and our coalition are hitting the streets to celebrate and also demand a good treaty that prohibits these weapons of mass destruction once and for all!

The Women’s March Ban the Bomb is a women-led initiative building on the momentum of movements at the forefront of the resistance, including the Women’s March on Washington. It will bring together people of all genders, sexual orientations, ages, races, abilities, nationalities, cultures, faiths, political affiliations and backgrounds to march and rally at 12 PM -4PM Saturday, June 17th 2017 in New York City!
