On Sunday, September 21st, 2014, members of the Sanitation Coalition were at the front of the People’s Climate March when over 300,000 concerned citizens from around the globe marched from Columbus Circle to the Javits Center to show their outrage at the absence of a strategy to combat climate change.

A USA Today photo prominently featured co-chairs Sarah Martin and Joan Levine during the march.

The Sanitation Coalition and other members of the NYC Environmental Justice Alliance were part of the Frontline Communities’ contingent that was chosen to march first.
