The consequences of Climate Change are too dangerous to ignore, yet the people in charge continue to do so. We do not. We are striking again to demand that our cities take action on climate change by declaring a climate emergency and by committing to create climate action plans and climate resiliency plans. This is why we are trying to hold a strike in all 91 incorporated cities and towns in Arizona. That effort starts right here in our capital city, Phoenix. Phoenix is the 5th biggest city in America and sets an example for all other cities and towns in Arizona and across the nation. The problem is the city of Phoenix isn't taking climate change seriously. Behind all their green talk is little concrete action. We need to pressure the City of Phoenix to take action on climate change to protect its residents and set an example for the rest of the state.

This is why we are asking you to join us on December 6th at Phoenix City Hall. We will be having a sit-in from 2 to 5pm and a rally at Caesar Chavez Memorial Plaza across the street once City Hall closes. We need Phoenix to show up and demand action. We have the opportunity to influence Phoenix's future policy but we need everyone's help. We can do this, together.

If you are from another city or town in Arizona stay tuned for information about a strike in your city, or if you are interested in becoming an organizer email us at arizona@youthclimatestrikeus.org.
