The Trump Administration's all-out assault on the environment, science, and our nation's most vulnerable communities will not stop us from moving forward! On April 29, we will unite for our climate and rights, and declare that Tampa is ready for 100% renewable energy!

Tampa's Day of Climate Action is in solidarity with the People's Climate March on DC on Apr. 29.

On April 29, we'll come together at Lykes Gaslight Park in support of Tampa commiting to 100% clean and renewable energy. NOW’s the time for Tampa to act on climate! The Tampa Bay area is one of the most vulnerable places in the world regarding climate change. And as the third-largest city in the state, Tampa is in a unique position to push Florida forward on climate change adaptation and mitigation action. Tampa's People's Climate March will involve 1. A rally, 2. A march, 3. Sea level rise exhibits, and most importantly 4. Opportunities to take action!

To amplify the need for Tampa to commit to 100%, we'll rally in the park and listen to powerful speakers (TBA), including some local elected officials, and representatives of frontline communities that are already being affected by climate change. 

After the rally, organizers will present an action training, directing folks to either grab a clipboard with petitions, or to head to phone banking stations and letter-writing stations (for letters to the editor and letters to elected officials). There will be thousands of people downtown for multiple big events that day, so we are using this opportunity to take action and build power! 

After the training, we will march down to MacDill Park on the Riverwalk to check out sea level rise exhibits that will be set up to demonstrate the rate of rise here in our bay. Folks can launch with petitions from MacDill and return around 1pm!

With everything at stake, everyone has a role to play, whether you’ve been engaged for decades or you’re coming out for the first time. Join us!
