For those who can not travel to DC, a coalition is organizing a People's Climate March in Indiana. The connections between climate, poverty, education, workers, and justice will be illuminated for all Hoosiers to see. Meet up at the Veteran's Memorial Plaza at 10:30 a.m.  After speakers, we'll march to Indy VegFest at the PanAm Plaza.

To  demonstrate the breadth and depth of the climate movement, we need broad participation of many groups and voices.  Carmel Green Initiative is joining the march to stand in solidarit for our community and climate.

We want you to join our group to represent Carmel's climate leadership!!! You don't have to live in Carmel to join our group.

Please RSVP so we know how many people to expect.  Also, when you RSVP, please let us know if you want to carpool.

If you are interested in carpooling, please RSVP before 5 p.m. on Friday, April 28.

We'll see how many people are interested  in carpooling and how many drivers we have.  We will meet at the Meijer parking lot (1424 W Carmel Dr, Carmel, IN 46032).  The carpool will leave at 9:30 a.m. so we have enough time to find parking and meet up with others from Carmel.
