On Fridays throughout the world this past year, students walked out of classrooms and went into the streets to compel action in addressing the climate crisis. What started as a one-person protest by Greta Thunberg has grown to a movement of millions in over 160 countries and at least 2000 locations. Youth are now calling upon adults to join them for a week of action from Friday, September 20th to Friday, September 27th. Already, the strike planned for the 20th is shaping up to be one of the largest mobilizations in the history of the climate justice movement.

Sign-up to receive updates for actions and events related to the climate strike as well as plans to form a UCC contingent in a march from Foley Square to Battery Park on the 20th.
