Thousands rallied at Boston Common on Saturday afternoon to demand action on climate change, one of many such events across the country and world marking the 100th day of Donald Trump’s presidency.
“We are here today because there is no Planet B,” the Rev. Mariama White-Hammond, minister for ecological justice at the Bethel AME Church in Jamaica Plain, told the sea of cheering people crowded around the gazebo.
A critical goal is to unite people across fractured segments of society in a realization that climate change affects us all, she said in an interview before the rally.
“Liberals or conservatives, blacks or whites — we will all go down together,” said White-Hammond.
