Kansas City’s contribution to today’s climate marches across the nation took place this afternoon on the Plaza with a march around the Plaza in the deluge of rain and a rally with a number of speakers inside Unity Temple. At noon over 200 individuals marched through the Plaza. The rally that followed inside Unity Temple started at 1:00 p.m. and ran for over two hours. Over one thousand people attended the rally.

The master of ceremonies for the rally:

Manny Abarca IV.

I wish people cared about the earth as much as they do about who they think created it.

Our children are watching.

Yes, they are.
