Folks from another Westchester congregation: 4th U in Mohegan Lake:
Take me out to the crowd!
In the "faith contingent section" was a Noah's ark:
Many faiths were represented. Muslims . . .
. . . Buddhists . . .
. . . Jews . . .
Ecumenical organizations, such as ROAR:
President of the UUA, Rev. Peter Morales (in yellow stole)
An estimated 1,500 UUs marched. Not all of them were in the yellow "Standing on the Side of Love" shirts -- but many were.
Mario P and Pam C
Two UU ministers, Rev. Allison Palm and Rev. Heather Concannon:
Looking good in yellow!

"Solutions exist" kinda sums it up. The marchers didn't have any specific solution to advocate -- just the urgent sense that climate change is a solvable problem.
Rev Peggy Clarke, who serves our Hastings Congregation, was a huge organizational force in getting Westchester folks to the march
