Possibly the largest climate march in history, which was supported by Brad Pitt, Edward Norton, Alexander Skarsgård and other celebrities, took place on September 21st last year, when over 400,000 people marched in New York City in the lead up to the UN Climate Summit that was about to take place there.

Inspired by The People’s Climate Movement, the organization feels the march helped to transform outdated ideas about climate change.

“We successfully changed the notion that climate change was just an environmental issue,” states its website. “This is also a social and economic justice struggle.” Despite its perceived success then, it is still frustrated with the lack of action being taken by leaders in the United States.

The People’s Climate Movement is now calling for pledges from citizens across the States to support a Day of Action on October 14. Developed by several groups, including Avaaz, Greenpeace, and Sierra Club, the organization is asking people to put together an event for the day, such as a neighborhood talk, a literature table, show a film or have a speaker. If pledgers outline it on the People’s Climate Movement website, events can be mapped, publicized and supported.

“To change everything, we need everyone, everywhere,” is its slogan.
