People's Climate March to the Polls

  • GSU - Perimeter College 3251 Panthersville Road Decatur, GA 30034 (map)

Join us Saturday October 29 for our 2nd annual People's Climate March, this time to the polls! This November is a crucial election for the climate, so we'll be marching together to #VoteClimate

Whomever we elect up and down the ballot this November will cement our climate legacy. If we are to reverse the dangerous course we are on, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, transform our energy systems and the global economy, and ensure the safety of future generations, we must elect leaders who are climate champions!

We will march from GSU Perimeter Campus to South Dekalb Mall for the last weekend of early voting in DeKalb County. (Must be registered in DeKalb County to vote at this polling station, but all Atlantans are welcome to march with us!)

12 p.m. - Speakers, networking and music begins. Also, we know it's Halloween weekend, so we're having a COSTUME CONTEST too! The winner gets a prime spot at the beginning of the march.

1:30 p.m. - March steps off. The route is about 1.5 miles.

2:30 p.m. - Begin arriving at South DeKalb Mall and casting our votes. The "end" time of this event may vary for you personally---you're done whenever you've completed your ballot!

Sponsored by GSU's Sustainable Energy Tribe and the 1.5 Degree Patrol. Visit for details on transportation, volunteer opportunities and more.
