    The Kids are Alright: Youth Climate Strike in Philly today

    Across the world, young adults are sending a message. Kids are leaving class, skipping school and gathering to express the urgency of climate change.

    With partners from 350.org, March for Science, Sierra Club and more, the US Youth Climate Strike are pushing acion, because they “believe the climate crisis should be declared a national emergency because we are running out of time.”

    Locally, students will gather at Love Park from noon to 2 pm, to emphasize action on the Green New Deal and the reduction of fossil fuels to meet global standards. During the main rally from, 3:30 pm- 5:30 pm at City Hall, students will be voicing their concerns and demands to legislators through local student speakers and performers.

    Students and adult allies are able to support the movement either in the Philadelphia strike, hometown strike, or respective school demonstrations.

    To join, find the Philly efforts or one close to you on the Youth Climate Strikes website.
