New York City Global Climate Strike
Start: Friday, September 24, 2021• 3:00 PM
End: Friday, September 24, 2021• 6:00 PM
On September 24th, 2021, Fridays for Future USA (FFF USA) and Fridays for Future New York City (FFF NYC) will be hosting a climate strike. The strike will begin at 3:00pm at City Hall Park and march to Battery Park, where there will be speakers from 4:30-6:00pm ET.
The strike will take place during United Nations Climate Week in NYC, where leaders will be converging. The strike will act as both a mass mobilization for change and an opportunity for youth to share their climate demands as part of the lead up to the UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP)26 in early November.
We want Global leaders to act and divest from fossil fuels. With the recent IPCC report, it is even clearer that the solution to the climate crisis is right in front of us - yet those in power refuse to act for the greater good.
The international narrative for the September 24 Global Strike is #UprootTheSystem - amplifying the voices of frontline, marginalized, and Most Affected People And Areas (MAPA), and their experiences dealing with the worst effects of the climate crisis. MAPA and predominantly Global South communities experience disproportionate climate effects due to the historic pollution and extraction by the Global North.
Our Partners include Extinction Rebellion NYC, 350 Brooklyn, Earth Guardians Manhattan, New York Youth Climate Leaders, Sunrise NYC, The Warbler, and Earth Day Initiative.
