March for Climate Change

March With Us to Combat Climate Change
April 18, 2020

The Modesto Peace/Life Center is collaborating with people and groups throughout our county to organize for April 2020 an historic March and Rally to Combat Climate Change. The event will take place on Saturday, April 18, the date the City of Modesto will sponsor Earth Day. The march will start at 10:00 a.m. from the intersection of Briggsmore and McHenry avenues. The rally at the Graceada Park Bowl will start at 11:30 and will feature climate action youth leaders from our local schools. Earth Day marks its 50th year in April, so our march and rally will be a fitting way to express our commitment to preserving our Earth and safeguarding our future.
The Center is contacting high school and college students throughout the county, urging them, as youth are doing world-wide, to take on a leadership role in this project. The Center will work with them and with all people and groups who want to participate and possibly help plan the event and follow-up actions people can take, both personally and with government and businesses.

What we do in Modesto and Stanislaus County will be part of a nationwide effort to underline the urgency for action—creating real change at all levels of civic life, from what we as individuals can do to how we together can help re-direct business practices and public policy at the city, state, and national levels.

We invite you to join us in helping to build a sustainable future. Please mark your calendar and spread the word about this march and rally. For updated information in early April see the April edition of the Peace/Life Center’s newspaper, Stanislaus Connections, (<> ), or our Facebook page (ModestoPeace/LifeCenter). If you’d like to volunteer to help us organize, please contact us soon by leaving a message on the Center’s phone, 529-5750, with your name. phone, and email; or by calling or emailing Valley Improvement Projects, 589-9277,<> ; or contacting Dan Onorato (526-5436);<> . Thank you.

Together let’s make our future more hopeful.
