Students Lead Global Climate Strikes

When: Friday, September 20, 2019, 12:00 pm to 5:00 pm
Where: Many locations globally • Boston

As another global School Strike unfolds today in 118 countries, I’m struck by the power of youth and wondering how we can join together as a multi-generational and multiracial movement beyond this moment.  

I am forwarding you this call to action published today by Greta Thunberg, Isra Hirsi, Alexandria Villaseñor, and dozens of young climate organizers from across the world. Over a million students are out of school again today to highlight the climate emergency we face, calling on allies of all ages to join in on the action.
