Protests are occurring around the world against plans for the U.S. to withdraw from the Paris climate accord.
The Rochester People’s Climate Coalition hosted a rally in downtown Rochester in front of the Federal Building.
The Coalition said President Donald Trump’s decision has actually inspired more people to join grassroots movements.
“It’s really imperative because leadership is not coming from the top, so we need to lead from the bottom,” said Linda Isaacson Fedele of Rochester People’s Climate Coalition.
The Coalition signed a Climate Action Plan earlier this week to renew their commitment to stop climate change.
