350.org on Trump Officials Deliberating US Participation in Paris Climate Agreement

As administration debates backing out of historic international agreement, movements for climate, jobs and justice gear up for April 29 Peoples Climate March
WASHINGTON -

Trump administration officials are expected to meet tomorrow to deliberate whether the United States’ should end its participation in the Paris climate agreement. This comes as movements for climate, jobs and justice gear up for the April 29 Peoples Climate March in the nation’s capitol and across the country.

In response, 350.org Executive Director May Boeve issued the following statement:

“An overwhelming majority of people in the United States support staying in the Paris agreement. It’s one of the animating reasons why so many people are joining the Peoples Climate March this April 29th in Washington, D.C. and across the country. As the Trump administration deliberates isolating the US from the rest of the world, movements for climate, jobs and justice are mobilizing to continue to build bold solutions that protect our communities and tackle climate change. We know this deal is critical to defending our climate and communities -- this is about our very survival.”

Over 100,000 people have already RSVP’ed for the DC march alone, along with more than 220 sister marches happening across the country and around the world.
