Ways to help, ways to get to NYC, and Schedule of Events!

Blessed Be, All! It's only 24 days away! Please read on for ways to help, resources, and the schedule!


We launched an Indigogo campaign this week--help us get the word out! This money will sponsor travel for marchers from far away get to NYC as well as help with supplies for the weekend. Please help out with a few bucks if you are able and please do share the link! The more cash we get, the more Pagans at the march...PLUS make it a comfortable experience for all involved! 

Tell your communities and groups all about the march! Please send them the link to our mailing list, where they can sign up for more information.

Have you RSVP'd for the March?RSVP are not required, but encouraged! The more accurate the expected attendees, the more accurate the number of Port-o-potties! (If you've ever tried to find a bathroom in midtown Manhattan, you know how important this is!) Registration can be found at this link:  

Need a place to stay? 
Houses of faith are organizing space for marchers to stay for free. We are still waiting on the details--stay tuned! 

Need a ride?
Buses and trains are coming from all over the place. Organizers are urging people to reserve early in order to ensure there are enough seats for all! Check out the link! Coming from Long Island? Sierra Club is offering r/t bus tickets to the march for under $10! Please see the link!

Please plan to be on the Upper West Side of Manhattan (Above 59th Street, West of the Park) between 9:00-10:00 a.m.

This is roughly 3 miles/5 kilometers.  Please stay tuned!
Interfaith Service at the End of the March
After the march, there will be an interfaith service at the stunning, non-denominational St. John the Divine Cathedral. This will be a wonderful and unique chance to raise energy and be in spiritual solidarity with religions from all over the place in support of addressing our Climate Crisis. If you would like to attend, pre-registration is mandatory! Please register at If you will not be representing an organization, you are welcome to list Pagan Environmental Coalition NYC or simply mark "none" or Solitary.
For those with mobility issues who would like to joinAgain, a TBA answer, but the organizers of the interfaith contingent are indeed working on a plan for those with mobility issues to join. Please stay tuned!
