Underwater Climate Rally

The Underwater Climate Rally & March, held on June 27, 2019, included over a dozen local, state and national organizations – calling on Presidential candidates and moderators to address the climate emergency during the debates in Miami.

Climate change is a fundamental threat to Florida’s people, our economy, tourism, agriculture, and real estate, and our very way of life. We are running out of time. Crucial decisions on the watch of the next President will make or break the ability of humans to survive on this planet, and whether or not Florida remains the place we know and love.

Participants wore blue to signify the “underwater” theme. Also on display was a mural created by Haitian artist James Brutus to depict how dirty energy pollution is bad for our health, and clean energy solutions are health solutions.
