Spring 2017 Environmental Action Events

People’s Climate Solidarity March – MN

When: Saturday, April 29th 2:30-6

Join the People’s Climate March solidarity event in the Twin Cities.

The People’s Climate March (2.0) is happening to challenge the backwards and dangerous policies of the Trump Administration and the threat they pose to our climate and our communities.

This is a moment to bring the range of progressive social change movements together. Pushing back against the Trump agenda and at the same time pushing forward on our vision of a clean, safe world where the rights of all people are protected and expanded means we all must work together.

Join us on April 29th as we resist, build, and rise in the face of the threats to our communities. Starts at 2pm at the Federal Building in downtown Minneapolis with a march and rally through downtown.

Students for Justice & Peace will be coordinating transportation to the march for those that want to join! (no need to be a member)


People’s Climate Solidarity March – DC

MN350, MNIPL, TakeAction Minnesota & other local partners will be coordinating buses for members of our communities to head out to Washington, DC from Minnesota. If you’d like to make the trip to DC, there are tickets available for the buses going out.

Northern Spark

Climate Chaos l Climate Rising

When: Sunset June 10th – Sunrise June 11th

Where: Metro Transit Green Line

Northern Spark is a free all-night art festival exploring the effects of climate change through participatory projects happening in neighborhoods along Metro Transit’s Green Line. From sunset on June 10 to sunrise on June 11, Northern Spark will illuminate and draw audiences to neighborhoods and public spaces all along the METRO Green Line, connecting Minneapolis and Saint Paul.

Experience the largest Northern Spark yet, with nearly 70 art projects organized around neighborhood nodes: Cedar Riverside/West Bank, Weisman Art Museum/East Bank, Little Africa/Snelling Ave, Rondo/Lexington Ave, and Little Mekong/ Western Ave. In downtown Minneapolis the festival moves from its usual river location to The Commons, the new green space at Portland and 5th, and culminates in Saint Paul at Union Depot, the Green Line terminus in Lowertown.

This year, every artist has translated their project into an action you can do on the spot or in the future or every day going forward. Something to cherish, nourish, explore, encourage, modify, argue with, live by, do. Some may think that these actions are trivial. They believe they are not. Taken together, whether over the course of one night or every day for the next four years, they represent the people rising. Only together can we make change
