Organizers of the upcoming People’s Climate March hosted a kickoff meeting  on Monday at the St. Stephen and the Incarnation Episcopal Church in Washington, D.C.

The aim was to teach activists about the “intersectionality” of the protest and how to present differing cultures and artworks to best fit the event. Experts explained various climate change issues, and leaders reviewed different aspects of the march.

The first People’s Climate March, held in New York City in September 2014, drew an estimated 400,000 participants. This year’s march will be held on April 29—the 100th day of Donald Trump’s presidency—a statement, in organizers’ words,  to “mark that day with a massive demonstration that shows that our resistance is not going to wane or fade away.”
