This weekend, the People’s Climate March made history as one of the largest demonstrations of its kind. Organizers estimate that more than 311,000 individuals showed up from all corners of the world to take to the streets of New York City. Their demands ranged from stopping fracking to divesting from fossil fuels to seeking environmental justice to enabling disaster preparedness. But they all agreed on one thing: We’ve got big climate problems, yo — and they need solving. Together, their perspectives converged into one very, very loud voice.
For those who couldn’t make it in person but were there in spirit, here’s a sampling of who you might have seen marching next to you. (All photos by Samantha Larson).
