Climate march stops in Youngstown

Posted: Updated:
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -

Members of Frack Free Mahoning Valley joined the group One Earth Village as it marched through Youngstown Thursday evening.

The group of four has had more than 100 people join them on various parts of their journey from Los Angeles to Washington D-C.

"It ties into climate change, which is what we're really talking about, with fracking but it overlaps and the big part of it is becoming resilient and wanting to protect our air and water and land," said Jeffrey Czerwiec, with One Earth Village.

Miriam Kashia, 71, had the idea for this Great March for Climate Action, which will end with a rally in the nation's capital.

"You know, 100-percent of climate scientists on this planet are in agreement about what's happening. And the fact that human beings are causing it, and the fact that we're reaching tipping points beyond which we will not have the ability to turn it around," said Kashia.

The march began on March 1, and so far, they are on schedule to end on November 1.

"Unfortunately for us, we will not have the opportunity to visit our legislators," said Kashia.

The group will stay at the First Unitarian Universalist Church before beginning its next leg into Pennsylvania Friday morning.
