Global Climate Strike – Boston

September 20 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Following the lead of Swedish activist Greta Thunberg, young people and adult allies in Massachusetts are joining the global call to action on September 20th, 2019, and going on STRIKE! All are invited and encouraged to join us in Boston and kick off a week of climate actions around Massachusetts. We have 11 years to stop the climate crisis—help us tell our elected officials we demand justice. We strike for the following demands: Massachusetts Green New Deal legislation, declaration of a climate emergency, and passage of environmental justice bills for a fair and just future.
