Don't put your signs away just yet! On the heels of the recent March for Science comes the People's Climate March, which takes place April 29 in Washington D.C. and around the world. If you're going, consider these creative People's Climate March sign ideas to let the climate-change deniers know that you stand for maximum climate protection, jobs that enforce it, and justice for our Earth. March organizers have issued a call to action requesting that everyone stand up and demand climate protection now, because, sadly, later just might be too late.
"Everything we have struggled to move forward in the United States is in peril," the People's Climate March organizers detail on the event's website. "Our loved ones feel under siege, and those in power in Washington are advancing a dark and dangerous vision of America that we know is untrue. To change everything, we need everyone."
While this year's march is more important then ever in the wake of Trump's systematic dismantling of climate protections, this is actually not a new march. The Peoples Climate Movement organized the historic People's Climate March, which drew 400,000 people, on the eve of the UN Climate Summit in 2014, according to the march website.
If you'e planning on heading to Washington D.C. for the main People's Climate March or to a sister march, which you can locate on an interactive map, here are some creative ideas for your signs so you can boldly represent The Resistance.
1Be Bold and Blunt
Creating jobs in outdated industries that are bad for the planet is shortsighted, and can only end badly for all of us.
2Don't Let Them Underestimate You
The quiet people working diligently behind the scenes are often underestimated. Scientists and park rangers have started speaking up because people with integrity don't stay quiet when it really matters, and Trump's underestimation of their commitment to protecting our planet might just be their secret weapon.
3Make Trump Run For Higher Ground
Your voice matters, and the Trump administration can't ignore all of us forever.
4The Heat Of March Is Why We March
March 2017 was the second hottest month on record for the entire world. These facts are hard to ignore, but some are still in denial. Make them listen.
5Knock Knock. Who's There? The Resistance.
Trump will probably be at Mar-a-Lago (again), but that doesn't mean you can't bring The Resistance to his front lawn.
6Arm Yourself With Irony (and A Costume)
You know, since the dinosaurs were wiped out in part by climate change.
7No Words Necessary
Sometimes a picture can do the work that words can't. If they won't listen to your voice, make them see with their eyes.
8Go Green, Not Blind
No explanation needed.
9Because Food Matters
If we ruin our land, and are unable to grow crops, the good news is we'll probably survive — but the bad news is that we'll do that by drinking those meal replacement beverages that don't actually taste like anything or offer any culinary variation. Black Mirror, anyone?
10Make Yourself Standout
If you're an artist, now is the time to use your creative voice to speak for the Earth.
11Because You Can't Drink Oil
Water is life.
12Keep It In The Ground
The tar sands mining procedure reportedly releases at least three times the CO2 emissions as regular oil production. That's not good for anyone.
13Let Lady Liberty Lead The Resistance
Reinforce the importance of clean energy solutions.
14Color Outside The Lines
Get your markers and poster board, and make your message bold and bright.
15Because, Polar Bears
Polar bears can't march, or talk, so they're counting on you to do it for them.
16Yass We Can!
Use your sass.
17Green Not Greed
Greed over one green will destroy the other.
18We Resist; We Rise
We are The Resistance.
19It's Really That Simple
Get right to the point, after all climate change really is a matter of life or death, for the planet and for future generations who intend to live on it.
