For the second weekend in a row, tens of thousands of environmentalists from around the nation plan to march at the nation's capital.

Among them will be a couple dozen activists from Kansas City who are protesting the president's environmental policy, including his lack of action on climate change and they keystone pipeline.

"We are the ones who have to get out there in the streets," Lori Lawrence with the Sierra Club said. "We need to get out there by email to our elected officials. We are the ones who have to contact those in power because we are their bosses and we have to remind them of that. That's the main thing I want people to understand when we are done with this -- take it home and continue the work. If we don't do anything, nothing will change and we want change."

The People’s Climate March is set for Saturday, which also aligns with President Trump's 100th day in office.

Protests are scheduled for cities across the national as well.
