On Sept. 8, the Peoples Climate Movement hosted 800 events in 90 countries, bringing together people fighting for climate, jobs, and justice around the world. The organization’s goal is to demand our political leaders at every level fight for a clean energy future that “helps to stop climate change,” according to the group. This effort resonates with even more importance after the recent IPCC report. The movement’s rallying cry, which could not be more relevant at this moment, is: “to change everything, we need everyone.”

I attended the Chicago event in September — and it struck a chord with people of all backgrounds. Please check out the day’s events below:
