Youth announce demands for September 20th Climate Strike

Our kids, communities, and future generations are at risk — what matters now is how we respond. We have to do all we can to help turn things around.

On September 20, we will come together — youth, parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, nieces, and nephews — to join hands across generations and support the students that are striking for climate action. This is shaping up to become the largest climate mobilization in world history. Ever.

Your voice matters, Bette — make sure it’s heard by RSVPing for a strike near you.

This week, the youth leaders announced their Climate Strike demands — policies that mark the progress we need for a livable future:

  • The Green New Deal to transform our economy to clean, renewable energy and create millions of good jobs
  • Respect of Indigenous Land and Sovereignty to honor the treaties and immediately halt all resource extraction on Indigenous lands
  • Environmental Justice and a just transition for all communities on the frontlines of poverty and pollution
  • Projection and Restoration of Biodiversity
  • Implementation of Sustainable Agriculture and investment in farmers
    Bette, this is the kind of bold vision we need to actually protect our kids and our communities.

The thing is, we can only succeed if our movement gets big enough to leave our elected leaders no choice but to listen and act. There are powerful forces stacked against us and it’s going to take ALL of us making our voices heard on September 20. If you have kids or grandkids, please bring them too! Now is the time.
