Above: Vancouver Unitarians join thousands at Global Climate strike, Sept 27, 2019
An estimated 100,000 people, including Unitarians from all four Greater Vancouver congregations, rallied at Vancouver City Hall for the September 27th Global Climate Strike
Unitarians from all four Greater Vancouver congregations – including three Unitarian ministers – gathered under the Vancouver Unitarians banner at the start of the Global Climate Strike in Vancouver on September.
The event was organized by students and we proudly joined with tens of thousands of them to fill the length of Cambie Street on our way through downtown Vancouver to the CBC building at West Georgia and Hamilton streets.
It was exhilarating – and reassuring – to be a part of this massive mobilization of Canadians. Police estimated that 100,000 people participated – perhaps the largest march ever in Vancouver.
