Days before May Day, on Saturday, April 29 thousands of people from across the country will take to the streets as part of the People's Climate Movement (PCM) mobilization happening in Washington, DC, timed right around Trump's 100th day in office. Alternatives for Community & Environment (ACE) is a part of a group that includes labor unions, environmental groups, as well as faith, youth and community organizations that are sending 1,000+ people from Boston. This is an opportunity for YOU to build community with other ACE members and partners, define what climate justice means, connect our struggle and march with our brothers and sisters from across the country.

If you are a young person 25 and under, we're offering a deeper discounted $10 per seat. All tickets sales are being used toward prep sessions including art builds and to purchase food and water for the bus trip. NOTE: There has been a drop in the ticket price since we opened registration because of a generous contribution to our buses from Sierra Club National.
