Scenes from Friday’s climate rally


On Friday, local elected officials hosted a climate change rally to send off marchers who attended the People’s Climate March in Washington, D.C.

Speakers at the event include Councilman Costa Constantinides, Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney, State Senator Michael Gianaris, Assemblywoman Aravella Simotas, Forest Hills Councilwoman Karen Koslowitz, and representatives from Astoria Park Alliance, Astoria Houses and Global Kids.

Dozens of residents attended the rally, and many brought their children as well. Never too early to start.
