The Global Climate Strike is happening this Friday, September 20th!
If you’re wondering what this means, where it’s happening, and how to participate, this post has everything you need! Plus, if you aren’t able to participate in-person, I’m sharing a few ways you can join the movement digitally.

WHY ARE PEOPLE STRIKING?
We are striking to bring attention to the urgency of the climate crisis–THINGS ARE BAD! While the strike itself won’t solve climate issues, it does send a clear message to our leaders and governments that we want change!
This strike (9/20) is also taking place 3 days before the UN’s climate emergency summit. This is the perfect time to make our voices heard.
WHEN/WHERE IS THIS HAPPENING?
The Global Climate Strike is happening this Friday, September 20th! To find a strike location near you visit: https://globalclimatestrike.net/#join and enter your zipcode!
There is an additional strike on September 27th that is part of Earth Strike (this is a general strike to save the planet–another great opportunity to unite and become a catalyst for change).
HOW CAN I PARTICIPATE?
Join the Global Global Strike by walking out of work, school, or home on September 20th (or 27th). You can find a strike location near you by visiting: https://globalclimatestrike.net/#join and entering your zipcode!
WHAT IF I CAN’T LEAVE WORK?
Some of us don’t have the ability to leave work–and some of us shouldn’t! We don’t want doctors walking out of surgery! Or elderly/disabled caretakers abandoning their daily responsibilities.
Not to mention, some of us depend on daily wages just to survive!
That’s okay, please don’t beat yourself up! You can still participate digitally or attend events on your days off. Heck, invite your friends over this weekend to discuss the climate crisis and find ways to have an impact in your community.
Plus, this fight doesn’t start and end on Friday. We have a long way to go when it comes to creating a sustainable future.
