The Great March for Climate Action announced today that it is now ready to formally accept applications from prospective marchers interested in participating in next year's eight-month, 2,980-mile trek from Los Angeles to Washington, DC. The Marcher Application and an accompanying promotional video were sent to 132 people who expressed interest in marching. The application can be found at ClimateMarch.org and the video can be seen here.

The diversity of individuals that requested an application is impressive.  They have ages ranging from 9-74, are originating from nearly every state in the United States, with backgrounds ranging from students, to farmers, to activists, to professors, to retirees and everything in between.   

"Today is a landmark day for the Climate March," said Ed Fallon, March founder and director. "It's the culmination of months of hard work, of laying a solid foundation for what we believe will be a pivotal moment in the battle to mobilize America to address the climate crisis."

"Given the early interest, we are confident there are well over 1,000 people ready to make the commitment to march across America for this cause," continued Fallon. "We now enter an important new phase, where we build a march community of 1,000 climate patriots."

The release of the marcher application and promotional video is a huge milestone for the Great March for Climate Action.  It signifies a time for public engagement, an invitation for others to get on board by stepping forward for our planet and our future.
