Organizers say it will be an historic moment: this Sunday, more than 1,000 businesses, unions, schools, social justice collectives, environmental groups and more will be marching together against climate change. With the UN Summit on climate crises taking place in NYC on Tuesday, activists say the time is right for a big street presence and are making up huge banners, puppets, giant trees and pipelines .

“Art can be at the DNA of your organizing and this has been our strategy”, says Gan Golan of the Mayday Arts Team People: “We are going to communicate big stories about climate change and the ways communities are responding.”
