Global Climate Strike Pre-Event in Amistad Chapel

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. Before a noon climate strike event on September 20th in downtown Cleveland's Public Square, the UCC national offices will host a Pre-Event Convocation in Amistad Chapel. We will gather at 11:15 am for an interfaith service to ground ourselves in the values and beliefs that fundamentally motivate us to act. We will then depart at 11:45 am to join the strike event a few blocks away.
