On an unusually hot spring afternoon, as over 200,000 people descended upon Washington, D.C. on Saturday, April 29 to support the People's Climate March, hundreds, including Christie Brinkley and Jill Rappaport, marched for the cause right here in the Hamptons during a sister march held in Sag Harbor.

Clever signs in hand, many said they attended because they were alarmed by the President and politician's environmental agenda.

"I'm here for a number of reasons, but mainly to make sure people understand that while our Congressman Lee Zeldin says that he's pro-environment, and points to some local things he's done, nationally he's totally anti-environment," Amy Turner of Wainscott told Hamptons.com. "He's supported the ability to dump coal waste into the streams, and he has not signed on to the Republican climate letter. He's part of the caucus, but he won't sign the letter that talks about human impact on climate change. So, I'm here to hope that he gets the message that he's got to act on climate and act now. CD1 [1st congressional district] could be underwater and he needs to represent us."

Since the East End is surrounded by water, many were also especially concerned with how climate change could impact the area.

"This is my sign that I've been carrying at every single rally I've been to so far - the Women's March, every other march - and it's just the issue that's most critical to us, especially on the East End," noted co-organizer April Gornik, whose sign said "Save the EPA." "Rising tides in this case are going to swallow us. We need to act fast, and oppose the bad, bad, hugely bad Trump administration policies."

Several local organizations, including Perfect Earth Project, PEER, Citizens Climate Lobby, Racial Justice East End, Shinnecock Nation, and UUCSF, helped play a part in the March's massive turnout.
