The People’s Climate Movement Builds Momentum

In Breaking News, Featured, Morning Magazine

On Saturday September 8th, thousands of rallies will be held in cities and towns around the world as part of a global movement demanding local leaders commit to building a fossil free world that works for everyone.

In Boulder, people will gather from noon at the Band shell at Broadway and Canyon. The Boulder event is organized by Our Revolution, the Boulder chapter. We hear from three members of the group: Marie Adams, Thomas Williams, chair of the group and Mark Williams, who ran in the Democratic primary this year in Colorado’s second congressional district.

Listen to an extended interview with Marie Adams, Mark Williams and Thomas Williams of Our Revolution Boulder:
