Kirkland Climate Strike
Start: Friday, September 20, 2019• 1:30 PM
Our house is on fire -- let's act like it. Join Washington Youth Climate Strike at Houghton Beach Park for the first Eastside climate strike. We are striking to demand or an end to the use of fossil fuels, to support a Green New Deal, and to bring attention to the 11 years we have left to stop climate change from permanently transforming our world. As youth, we will be the most affected by the climate crisis, and with politicians doing little to bring attention to climate change, youth and adults around the globe are going on strike on September 20th.
At the event, there will be speeches from youth and adult activists, an 11 minute silent peaceful protest for the 11 years we have left, and time for writing letters to our elected officials, as well as chalk art and shirt decorating. All ages are welcome, so invite your friends and family!
Bring a sidewalk chalk, and a sign!
