Pope Francis will address Congress on September 24 and plans to discuss his recent climate-change encyclical Laudato Si': On Care for our Common Home. A People's Rally for Climate Justice is planned for that morning at 7:30 AM on the National Mall. While many rally details are not yet final, there likely will be prominent speakers and musicians; and Pope Francis may view the rally from the Capitol's west side after his speech.
