On September 20th, as part of the Global Climate Strike, we will gather here in R.I. by the hundreds to demand urgent and bold action on the climate crisis. It’s time we send a clear message to our elected officials; we must act, and we must act now.
In March and May, students rallied at the R.I. State House to demand climate justice as part of the global student climate strikes kicked off by Swedish activist Greta Thunberg. Now, we will escalate our campaign further by growing in number and by spending a full day envisioning together how to build a just and sustainable future for our state. Just three days before the Emergency UN Climate Summit in New York, this strike will be a powerful opportunity to draw attention to the climate emergency that we’re in and to demand action.
People of all ages are welcome and encouraged to come!
