On Saturday, as world leaders signed a historic climate deal in Paris, people from across New England came together for a massive rally and march for jobs, justice and climate! WBUR reported that 2,000 people were there -- making for the biggest climate march or rally in Boston history.
It was an incredible day, with powerful speeches from leaders like Karen Higgins, RN, national co-president of National Nurses United; Adrian Ventura of the New Bedford Workers' Center; Derek Pelotte of 350 Mass Lowell; and many, many more.
140+ organizations co-sponsored the event, and it was a powerful demonstration of the strength and diversity of our growing movement!
