Climate Strike Sept 20 – Ballard
September 20, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
On September 20, young people and adults will strike to demand transformative action be taken to address the climate crisis.
Building on a historic surge of student protests and strikes for climate action, the September 20 strike comes ahead of the United Nations Summit on Climate Change three days later, when world leaders will convene in New York with the goal of deepening climate ambition. In over 150 countries, people are already pledging to organize events on September 20 and during the Week of Action that will follow it.
The September 20 Climate Strike is an intergenerational, intersectional effort which will result in a range of events taking place across the country.
Led by the youth climate strikers, people will walk out of school and work to join mass marches and rallies, to music concerts, sit-ins and nonviolent direct action, connecting the climate movement to civic engagement.
