The second People’s Climate March will take place on Saturday, April 28 at 10:00 a.m., prior to the South Lake Tahoe Earth Day Celebration.
The Tahoe Climate Change Action Network organized the inaugural march in 2017 to coincide marches across the country and the huge national march in Washington, D.C. marking President Trump’s 100th day in office. Marches protested the President’s environmental policies, changes to the Environmental Protection Agency and the rolling back of Obama-era regulations on fossil fuels.
In South Lake Tahoe, the march was a celebration of the decision by the City of South Lake Tahoe City Council to use 100 percent renewable energy by 2032. 400-500 people marched from Lakeview Commons to Earth Day at Bijou Community Park, the same route they’ll take this year.
