Striking from school is no small task. It’s a sacrifice these students are taking to demonstrate the severity of the crisis we’re facing and the boldness we need from our elected officials. It’s the exact kind of leadership and courage we need in this moment. Let’s show up and support them!
From the Portland Youth Climate Strike: “The latest IPCC report shared that climate impacts will be continually more catastrophic if there isn’t bold action taken to reduce emissions which lead to the warming that fuels these disasters. Many of the people currently in positions of power will not live to see the impacts of their decisions, so it’s important to emphasize youth voices in the demands for a livable future.”
From the global Fridays for our Future movement: “Together we will fight for a just future where no one is left behind. The historical victories of collective action have proven the need for the youth to stand united with the intersectional, intergenerational struggle for a better future for all; a future where people and planet are prioritized. Now more than ever, we have to join the masses and follow the lead of environmental defenders, workers, and those most ignored. Join in their struggle for decolonization, justice and autonomy. We must remember that our liberations are tied together.”
We hope to see you in the streets on Friday!
