This is a sit down, a stand up, in the center of our community with clear signs. It’s our gesture. Our being together, being for the change, being in our great power.
Everywhere, the signs are clear: our climate is on the brink of collapse, and our communities are suffering from the impacts. Across the Midwest, communities are still struggling to recover from unprecedented floods, particularly Indigenous nations.
As the climate crisis continues to claim lives, and our future becomes more uncertain by the day, our elected officials keep catering to the fossil fuel billionaires who created this problem instead of protecting people and the planet. It’s no wonder young people around the world have been taking to the streets for more than a year. Now, the youth are calling on people of all ages to join in — and it’s up to all of us to heed their call to action.
On September 20th, millions of people of all ages around the world will walk out of their classes, jobs, and homes as part of a Global Climate Strike. Let’s join them.
