"Climate change is a civil rights issue. We’re marching today because we’re changing the conversation. Climate and the environment are not niche issues anymore – that’s exciting. It used to be that we’d talk about the environment and then we’d talk about people. They’re one and the same. Climate justice is people justice. I don’t think quiet, peaceful action like recycling works. There has to be some kind of disruption, an extended moment of disruption. I got into Martin Luther King this summer – he wanted a Poor People's Campaign. Climate justice is a poor people's campaign. We need a continuation of the civil rights movement, a freedom movement. It’s a deep structural need."
