This is an INCLUSIVE march, and EVERYONE who supports the march’s goals are welcome to join this peaceful gathering!
Below is the mission statement from Future Coalition
“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. More than 6,000 people in 150 countries are already pledging to organize events on September 20 and during the Week of Action that will follow it.
Coordinated by Future Coalition, the effort includes organizations such as Earth Uprising, Fridays for Future USA, Extinction Rebellion-Youth, Sunrise, US Youth Climate Strike and Zero Hour. The Youth Climate Strike Coalition is steering the national campaign, with the active support, participation and collaboration from an adult Climate Strike Coalition, which includes leading national progressive organizations such as 350.org, Greenpeace, SEIU and March On. Youth and adults, institutional and grassroots organizations, climate-focused and social justice groups, are coming together as a unified front to demand the change needed to protect the future.
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. The Climate Strike Coalition is planning large-scale events with partners and local activists across the country, with an emphasis on highlighting the work of frontline communities, and connecting the climate movement to civic engagement.
Currently, the Youth Climate Strike Coalition is actively organizing in local communities across the country, working closely with other youth and adult allies, to build momentum for September. New organizations continue to be added to the Climate Strike Coalition.”
There will be numerous marches and events happening across Maryland, the country and the world starting on September 20th and lasting for seven days. We invite you to #strikewithus where ever you are! For more information, events and locations visit Strike With Us.
