Local activists and more than two dozen organizations are hosting an Earth Day rally in downtown Atlanta this weekend to demand action on climate change from elected officials. ​​The Fight For Our Future Rally for Climate, Care, Justice, and Jobs will take place on Saturday, Apr. 23 from 12 noon until 2 p.m. at Liberty Plaza, adjacent to the Georgia State Capitol.

Free food, live music and yard games are part of the plan. “From public health impacts to extreme weather events here in Georgia, one thing is perfectly clear — climate can’t wait,” organizers said in their announcement.
