Rise for Climate March

Join Person of the Planet at the “Rise for Climate March” In SF

 Saturday September 8, 2018

On September 8, 2018, thousands will march in San Francisco for the largest climate march the West Coast has ever seen.

Together they will Rise for Climate, Jobs & Justice as part of a global day of action to demand our elected leaders commit to no new fossil fuels and a just and fair transition to 100% renewable energy.

World’s Largest Street Mural: At the end of the march on Sep 8, be sure to check out the record-breaking street mural at Civic Center. Their goal is to complete 50 mural sections, each 50×50 ft.

Person of the Planet will meet near the Sue Bierman Playground which is to left as you face the Ferry Building just past the Embarcadero Plaza between 10am and 11.  The march starts at 11am.  Look for the long Person of the Planet banner.

March Schedule

10:00-10:50 AM - March Line-up at Embarcadero Plaza

We will be gathering at the foot of Market Street in San Francisco, near Embarcadero Plaza. We will be encouraging people to march and organize not just as individuals - but along themes based on the diversity of our communities, concerns, and issues. Contingents are self-organized and growing in numbers.


11:00 AM - We Rise Together: Moment of Solidarity

We’ll share a moment of silence followed by a song before we march.


11:05 AM-12:00 PM - March down Market St.

The route will go from the Embarcadero Plaza area, up Market St, to Civic Center. It is largely flat, about 1.7 miles, and should take the average marcher about 1.5 - 2 hours to complete. We will have a support vehicle at the tail of the march if anyone needs a ride or a break.


12:30-4:00 PM - Resource Fair at Civic Center

The march will end at Civic Center Plaza, near San Francisco City Hall. There will be music, and dozens of information tables from the organizations that helped make this march possible.


2:00 PM - We Rise Together: Moment of Solidarity

We’ll take moment for everyone to stop painting, step back and see what we’ve created. A drone will take photos as we move and sing together. Same song as before
