To stay connected to our organizing efforts, join our text messaging system — you’ll receive occasional text messages with updates about the march. To join, use your cell phone to text @PCM350MA in the text message box to the number 23559. These are 350MA-specific updates, so they’re different from the national text message updates.
We have a 350MA meet up location, which is at the Museum of Natural History, specifically on 81st St West in between Central Park West and Columbus Ave. The approximate address is 35W 81st St., New York NY. We will be officially meeting at this location from 11am-11:30am, so if you didn’t come on the bus, find us there then for a massive 350MA photo. This location is right along the march line up zone, so after the photo, follow our instructions to head to the line up zone along Central Park West. We will try to get in block 3 (We Have Solutions), which lines up from 72nd-77th St., but because of the massive scale, we may be in another section. Follow the text updates!
We will march for approximately 3 miles to the end location of south and west of 11th Ave. and 34th St. We will try to stay as a group, but keep in mind that it will be hectic. Enjoy the energy and go with the flow, and check your phone from time to time for 350MA updates on where we are. I will send one approximately every 15 minutes.
The march is being led by frontline communities and indigenous groups from around the continent and the world, who are many of the first victims of climate change, and at 12:58, we’re having a moment of silence to honor those on the front lines. When you see people start linking hands above their heads, that’s the sign the moment of silence is beginning.
Also, please text “ALARM” to the number 97779. By doing this, you will receive a reminder about the moment of silence.
At 1:00pm we are going to end that moment of silence with a great, big noise—sounding the climate alarm that has gone ignored for too long. You’ll know it’s time to ring that alarm and make as much noise as you can when you hear 32 marching bands blowing their horns and church bells ring from around the city (so bring your own noisemakers).
Don’t pack too much and remember to bring light layers, water, and food for the day. Remember your fully charged phone! There will be hundreds of thousands of people there. Be careful, be relaxed, and have fun!
