People’s Climate March Bend

November 29, 2015 @ 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Who: All Central Oregonians who are concerned about climate change

What: A march to support action on climate change at the U.N. Climate Change Conference

When: Nov. 29, 2015 (Sun., 1­–3:30 p.m.)

Where: Riverfront Plaza   875 NW Brooks St, Bend, OR 97701 – (downtown between the two Mirror Pond parking lots next to Drake Park and Crow’s Feet Commons)

We know that climate change is already having enormous impacts worldwide—and right here in Bend. On Sunday, Nov. 29, our community is coming together for a march to:

  • Show that WE CARE about climate change
  • Support local politicians’ efforts to combat climate change
  • Be part of a mass action of thousands of people worldwide who are marching to inform the United Nations Climate Change Conference

The theme of the march is OFF + ON — turn OFF the world’s supply of fossil fuel and turn ON the infinite power of renewable energy. It’s a theme designed to influence the U.N. conference in Paris, which could be a turning point in the fight against climate change, but only if people like us show that we support—and demand—action.

The format for the march will begin with a brief introduction, followed by a march through downtown Bend, and ending with local speakers and a special performance by iChiringa!. iChiringa! is a four-piece Latin dance party band based in Bend that plays a variety of classic to modern covers in their own rockified way. 

Please JOIN US on Nov. 29, 2015, so we can make our voices heard! Let’s send a message from Bend, Oregon, that we care about climate change and support leadership that will take action to protect our community and our future.

The march is supported and organized by the Central Oregon Climate Change Coalition:
