The Pennsylvania Climate Convergence's organizers are frontline community members, grassroots organizers, and advocates.

The Pennsylvania Climate Convergence is a diverse, inclusive, peaceful gathering organized to demand urgent action by our government to address the climate crisis. The path to climate justice necessarily includes the phase out of greenhouse gas production and a just transition to clean, renewable energy for those most affected by the exploitative fossil fuel and petrochemical economy.
