DC Climate Strike
Start: Friday, September 20, 2019•11:00 AM
End: Friday, September 20, 2019• 2:00 PM
Since Greta Thunberg’s first school strike for climate a year ago, young people have revolutionized the way humanity perceives the scope of the climate crisis. On September 20, 2019, young people will kick off a worldwide week of action with an international strike. September 20th will be the largest mass mobilization for climate action in human history. This time, adults will be joining the youth-led call for climate action to demand world leaders take meaningful steps to address this crisis with the urgency it requires.
Youth and adults will stand arm-in-arm in the fight together for the future of humanity. In Washington, DC, thousands of people with join us to demand climate actions and local youth organizers from over a dozen organizations, including Fridays for Future, Zero Hour, OneMillionOfUs, 350.org, DC Youth Climate Strike, National Children’s Campaign, and Our Children’s Trust, will strike in solidarity with millions of people around the world to demand a safe and survivable future.
We are striking for environmental justice, respect for indigenous land and sovereignty, a Green New Deal and just transition off of fossil fuels, the protection and restoration of biodiversity, and the implementation of sustainable agriculture. The DC Climate Strike will show our leaders that we will not stand idly by while our future is sold to the highest bidder and the biggest polluters. Our generation is here to say enough is enough and now is the time for immediate climate action.
Thank you for striking with us. #StrikeWithUS
