Beyond Coal Philadelphia KXL and MLKJ!

January in our nation's fifth largest city proved to be most busy, with marches, rallies and social events.  On January 13, we partnered with our favorite partners-in-good, 350 Philly, to give a grassroots response to a misguided court decision!

Nearly 100 activists showed up for a march that was too wide for the sidewalk as planned.  So, Philly's finest cleared JFK Blvd, during rush hour, and we made our way to Senator Casey's doorstep, chanting and singing the whole way.

Sierra Club Beyond Coal Philadelphia has been a shining example of the City of Brotherly Love, with a sizable and active African American and Military Veteran volunteer base.  On January 19, the MLKJ March allowed us to show our social justice partners that the environmental movement stands by their side!

More to come from Philly!
