The People’s Climate March

By Ian Hnizdo
Excerpted from The Delphian

Over 130 Adelphi students, faculty and staff joined more than 300,000 in a rally in New York City on September 21, 2014, in what has been called the greatest climate change march in history. The People’s Climate March was intended as a wake-up call to the United States and the world about the threat of man-made climate change and its impact on everyone’s future. Adelphi was among numerous colleges and universities that participated.

The highlight of the event was at 1:00 p.m., when, with the signal of a whistle, the crowds let loose a chant that symbolized the people of the world speaking and demanding action on the environmental crisis.
