How the Climate Movement Connected to the Resistance

The Resistance

How has the climate movement connected with the Resistance? This chapter explores the ways the 2017 People’s Climate March built on the momentum of the Resistance to mobilize a crowd with intersectional interests. First, data collected through random surveys of participants at the People’s Climate March in September 2014 are compared with those collected at the People’s Climate March in 2017. The results show how the movement has changed over that 3-year period. Next, the results from the 2017 March are compared with data collected from the Women’s March in 2017. As at the Women’s March, the 2017 People’s Climate March mobilized a crowd with intersectional interests that cross racial identity, class, gender, and sexuality. There is evidence from this analysis that the climate movement has become part of the growing Resistance. This chapter concludes by discussing the implications of these findings on the climate movement and the Resistance more generally.
