Bring your friends, family, workmates, water bottles, and hand-made signs to demonstrate the need for action on the global climate crisis.
On the day of the Summer Solstice show your concern about the climate crisis by participating in Pittsburgh’s first ever Climate Action rally. Following music by the Squirrel Hill Billies, Pittsburgh City Councilman Dan Gilman will present the proclamation of June 21 as Climate Action Day. Dr. Patti DeMarco will make introductory remarks followed by Wanda Guthrie, Michelle Naccarati-Chapkis, Veronica Coptis, Chris Bangs, and Joylette Portluck.
