Join activists in Sedona and around the world!
On September 25th, demonstrations will take place across the globe. Since we cannot gather safely in large numbers, NAZCCA is organizing a socially distanced rally. Join community members in Sedona from 8am-10am, spread out along 89A between Mountain Shadows Rd and Coffee Pot Restaurant, to show your support for equitable solutions and LOCAL climate action.
To safely protest, we are asking every person to act responsibly, stand alone, wear a mask, and maintain strict social distancing of 10-20 feet. The rally supports goals to stop climate destruction and listen to science. Messaging should be climate related and not political, especially our local issues -- putting funding to work on climate mitigation. Hit the streets with us -- Your action matters!
Can’t join the protest? Drive, walk, or ride a bike by and show your support! Let’s build our path forward! Also! Make your vote count toward Climate Action!

The coming months and years will be crucial in ensuring a safe pathway below 1.5 °C increase in global mean temperature. We need to act together. On September 25th, demonstrations will take place all across the globe, all while keeping each other safe from COVID.
"We need to slow down on what we consume and throw away as we care for each other and our common home." Pope Francis
During the September 2019 climate strikes six million people took to the streets, uniting across timezones, cultures and generations to demand urgent action on the escalating climate emergency. “People power is more powerful than the people in power." The Climate Strikes were part of a climate movement, inspired by Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg and likely the biggest ever climate mobilization in world history.
“This is the tipping point. Today’s youth are not fooled: their futures are being stolen before their very eyes by the fossil fuel industry and corrupt politicians. We’re joining them because we refuse to be bystanders while our children are left with an unlivable planet by our inaction,” said Shuo Peskoe-Yang, with Fight for the Future. “The children are calling on us, and the time to act is now.”
“To actually experience the climate crisis makes you understand the urgency of the situation. Millions are losing their homes and livelihoods, this can no longer exist in a vacuum. We need world leaders to prioritise humanity over greed. The youth are going to come together, over and over again – each time more strategic and united than ever before,” says Disha Ravi from Fridays For Future India.
