350 Mass is heading down to NYC
350 Mass members will march together!
We will gather at 55th and Broadway starting at 11 am. Look for the 350 banners, balloons and other signs and markers for our team! We will be marching alongside other 350 groups from across the country. All are welcome to join - whether you are primarily a 350 Mass member or not.
We may get rain, so dress appropriately.
Buses will be leaving from a few locations in Massachusetts: Alewife Station - Cambridge (wheelchair accessible bus), Brookline, Framingham, Park Street Station - Boston, Northampton, Springfield, and Worcester. After you buy your ticket, our team will reach out with detailed boarding information.
Buses will board early! Each location will be different, but plan to be there with time to spare.
The March to End Fossil Fuels is in New York on September 17th, 2023! With wildfire smoke choking the air we breathe, hurricanes and floods threatening our homes, and toxic pollution making us sick, it has never been more urgent to end our dependence on the leading cause of these crises – fossil fuels.
In New York this September, the United Nations will gather world leaders for a first-of-its-kind Climate Ambition Summit to demand that nations stop developing new oil, gas and coal projects and begin phasing out fossil fuels once and for all. With his recent approvals for mega-polluting projects like the Willow Oil Drilling Project and the Mountain Valley Pipeline, President Biden must immediately reverse course to earn his seat at the table. But it will take all of us acting together to make sure he does.

How we can celebrate Rosh Hashanah
We understand that this action falls on Rosh Hashanah, and people celebrate the holiday in many ways. If observing Rosh Hashanah means that you will not be able to join the march, then we are share your frustration on the choice of date for the Climate Ambition Summit. If observing Rosh Hashanah means you will be rolling down to NYC with us, then you are encouraged to connect with our team and your bus captain if there is something meaningful we can do together. Check out the FAQ on the End Fossil Fuels website for more ways to observe the day.
We recommend that all bus riders test the day before we leave, and please do not join us on the bus if you are not feeling well. We recommend bringing and wearing a mask on the bus.
We will have one wheelchair accessible bus leaving from Alewife Station. To request accessibility services at the march, please fill out this form. Here is some information from our friends in NYC that can help you plan your trip:
The march route is 1.3 miles long, paved and mostly flat, in a dense city environment with a fair amount of shade. Drinking water refill stations will be provided, and porta-potties will be set up at the start of the march and at the closing rally, including ADA units & hand washing stations. The rally will have ASL interpretation and space reserved near the stage to see the interpreter. The rally will also have a shaded seating area for those who need it. Everyone is welcome to join any part of the event as they are able, whether that's a part of the march, or the closing rally at 49th St and 1st Ave.
This weekend we may have to contend with Hurricane Lee. The plan is to head down to New York, even if we are getting rain. If the weather gets to be really bad, all ticket holders should look out for an email, and check our twitter: @350mass, as well as the march organizers in NYC: @fightfossils, #EndFossilFuels for updates.
