The UUCE sponsored the 2017 Erie Climate March and Rally in solidarity with People’s Climate Marches in Washington DC and cities around the world.  With 30 UUCE members swelling ranks of the 500 participating marchers we showed our strong support for issues relating to clean air, clean water, and our planet’s health.

The March started at East Avenue Boat Ramp, passed the Erie Coke Plant (long history of toxic emissions) and ended at Wayne Park for a rally with speakers/music until 4 pm.  The speakers, including our own Al Richardson, addressed the Trump administration’s dismantling of federal regulations and agencies that have been protecting the environment and the health of our families and future generations.
