Indianapolis US Strike
Start: Friday, September 20, 2019•11:00 AM
End: Friday, September 20, 2019• 3:00 PM
On September 20th, three days before the UN Climate Summit in NYC, young people and adults will strike all across the US and world to demand transformative action be taken to address the climate crisis.
We want to answer the young people's call to take action and ensure lives of opportunity for them and generations to come.
We are inviting people from Indianapolis and from Indiana to join us for a peaceful protest and a show of solidarity, love and caring with and for our children and for all the children of the world, of all species.
Let's demand urgent action from decision-makers to solve the climate crisis in our city, our state, our country and the world. Let's make September 20th, 2019 the day humanity turned things around and put itself and the whole biosphere on a sustainable path.
We will gather at the Indiana Statehouse on the South Lawn at 11:00 am for a rally. Please bring signs with messages of your choice or use for inspiration the following:
11:15 am - welcome and agenda
11: 20 am - 1:20 pm - speeches, interaction with the coalition partners, media availability
1: 20 pm - select the delegation that will deliver the US Youth Climate Strike platform to the Governor, the legislature and the offices of Senator Todd Young and Senator Mike Braun.
1:40 pm - reading of the US Youth Climate Strike platform by a group of organizers
2: 30 pm - delegation leaves
2: 45 pm - thank you and future plans for the Indiana climate coalition
3:00 pm - end of the rally
The event is rain or shine, but we will adapt our schedule if the weather makes it difficult to be outside for four hours.
Please do your best to make this event fossil-free, if at all possible, and share with all of participants your solution for that day, so we can amplify it and make our city fossil free.
Please contact us for any questions and suggestions you might have. If you would like to help as a volunteer, please let us know. We are grateful and happy to be with you on September 20th, 2019.
