3:00 pm to 7:00 pm

Join Shoals Environmental Alliance & Indivisible NW Alabama on Saturday, April 29th, 3:00-7:00pm, at the Lauderdale County Courthouse Plaza, 200 S. Court Street, Florence, AL 35630.

We are marching to show people that, even here in "Red State" Alabama, we are concerned about climate change and the inability of many of our politicians in Washington D.C. to address this important issue. 

Donald Trump is a threat to the future of our planet, the safety of our communities, and the health of our families.

The new administration has attacked the hard-won protections of our climate, health, and communities, and the rights of people of color, workers, indigenous people, immigrants, women, LGBTQIA, young people, and more.

We've fought back with a wave of protests larger than at almost any other point in history — let's make sure that we mark the 100th day of his presidency with another mass action that stands up for our communities.

This is a sister march to the People’s Climate March in Washington D.C. on this date.
