Finnegan was among the thousands who converged on downtown San Francisco Saturday morning for the Rise for Climate, Jobs, and Justice march—a mass mobilization designed to show community concern about the climate crisis and to put grassroots pressure on the political and business leaders who will gather in the city this coming week for the Global Climate Action Summit.

By noon, the march, led by Indigenous activists and people of color, stretched a full 10 blocks through San Francisco’s Financial District.

Organizers with 350.org and the Sierra Club estimated that some 30,000 people took part in the rally, which would make it the largest climate protest to have ever taken place on the West Coast.
