As you may know, 350.org
and many other organizations are teaming up to organize the largest climate rally in history this coming September. It’s timed to coincide with the UN climate summit, in hopes of putting pressure on world leaders to get past political barriers and take significant action on climate NOW.

The march will take place on Sunday, September 21 in New York City. Details are still being worked out with the NYPD, but people all over the country are making plans to be there. The Green Sanctuary Task Force of the UU Church of Bloomington is organizing a bus, and everyone is encouraged to get on board!
Here’s the gist of our itinerary: We plan to leave Bloomington (probably the UU parking lot) in the evening of Saturday, Sept. 20; we’ll drive through the night to arrive in NYC around 10am, then get back on the bus that evening, drive through the night, and return to Bloomington about 7am on Monday morning. The bus seats about 55 people, and will be equipped with wifi.
