HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — More than 1,000 people from Connecticut are set to travel to New York City to attend what is expected to be a series of worldwide marches calling for solutions to the threat of climate change.
The Connecticut Fund for the Environment says about 600 people have bought train tickets to travel from Union Station on Sunday morning. A group of bicyclists will ride from New Haven to New York city and others will take buses from 10 locations across the state.
They will join tens of thousands of people from around the nation who are gathering in New York City to call for action on climate change on Sunday. Organizers call it the largest climate march in history.
Participants from Connecticut include those from environmental, faith, justice and immigration groups
