9:30 AM – 3:00 PM


Join us at the Peoples Climate Mobilization and help us grow our campaign to put a price on carbon in D.C.!

The People’s Climate March for Climate, Jobs, and Justice is just around the corner. On April 29, we need to make a big show of support against Donald Trump’s polluting agenda. This will also be an unbeatable opportunity to grow our local climate movement and advance the campaign to “Put A Price On It D.C.”

We plan to seize this moment — but we need your help! Join us and help us grow our base at the Peoples Climate Mobilization.

During the march, we will be carrying signs in support of the DC carbon rebate campaign, gathering petitions, and performing a fun skit about the policy. We need a lot of folks in the crowds calling for action on this solution! It’s time to hold polluters accountable for environmental injustice by making them pay carbon rebates to all DC residents. Volunteers will be meeting at Protein Bar near Capitol Hill before heading out to march.

What: Join us to build support during the Peoples Climate Mobilization
When: Saturday, April 29, meetup between 9:30 -10:00 a.m.

The Campaign to Put A Price On Carbon: How it All Began

For most Americans, the words “D.C.” and “climate” only bring to mind Congress’ stubborn fidelity to the fossil fuel industry. Lately, national policies fly in the face of mounting catastrophe. But the city of D.C. itself has a proud record on sustainability. From renewable energy standards, to energy efficiency measures, to investment in public transportation, D.C. has a strong reputation for progressive climate action. The District has even enacted a strong goal to reduce carbon emissions by 80 percent by 2020!

However, actions speak louder than words, and much remains to be done before D.C. can achieve its climate goals. That’s why, in late 2015, the District’s leading environmental organizations came together around a bold vision for climate action.

The “Put a Price on It D.C.” campaign was born from the shared understanding that only a rising price on pollution can be strong enough to close the gap. So, the coalition set out to pass the first progressive carbon fee in the nation, and fulfill D.C.’s goals of inclusive prosperity in a walkable, livable, sustainable city.
