Students from University of Alabama march with their signs, demanding climate justice.

Allegheny students travelled to New York City on Sunday, Sept. 21 to participate in People’s Climate March (PCM). Hundreds of thousands of people joined together to bring attention to climate change.

Smaller-scale demonstrations took place across the globe, but NYC is considered one of the largest climate marches in history. Demonstrators pushed for a demand to action, targeting global leaders.
On Tuesday, Sept. 23, a United Nations summit brought world leaders together to discuss action towards a global climate deal.
