Let's join for a sister parade to the People's Climate March on Washington.
On April 29, 2017 let's show solidarity for our community and climate. In conjunction with the national march, we will demonstrate how climate change is affecting the greater Charleston area by gathering together then marching through the East Side of town, beginning at the Royal American (970 Morrison Dr.) and ending at St. Julian Devine Community Center (1 Cooper St.).
Charleston will likely experience sunny day flooding events 180 days by 2045.
The time to take action is NOW!
Giant puppets will lead the march. Creative/festive costumes (riff on rain gear?), puppets, musical instruments, and signage & chants to make the loudest statement we can. And awesome sign making stations from 9-9:30am (with coffee, first come first served).
Join us to kick off AWAKENING V: KING TIDE and shine light on rising waters and flooding streets through public art, creative events, poetry, lectures, and more.
We resist. We build. We rise.

RISING TIDES: ARTIST TALK THURSDAY, MAY 4 AT 6PM* Joseph Floyd Manor Community Room, 2106 Mt Pleasant Street *The same talk will also be offered at 4pm the same day if an earlier time is of interest
“Rising Tides” is a visual presentation focused on Charleston’s frequent flooding, with local scientific research. As an environmental activist, Mary Edna Fraser's art stimulates social change. Batiks on silk and oil paintings of threatened landscapes educate about sea level rise through collaboration with Duke University’s Orrin Pilkey in Climate Change: A Primer. How are we facing this future as a community? Let’s awaken to the reality of increased frequency of king tides to survive.
This event is free and open to the public. All are welcome.
