      With the consequences of climate change becoming ever more clear and dire with each passing day, a new powerful wave of the climate movement has been swelling up over the last couple of years. Young people around the world have been rising up to defend our future, and have been going on strike – every week, all over the planet – for months. In the September Climate Strikes alone, 7.6 million people took to the streets with us.

      We, as a global society, are at a crossroads. We have a decision to make. Are we going to choose money or power, or are we going to choose the future? The September 20th strike was an invitation to everyone to choose us. Choose the kids, choose humanity, choose the future.

      Our movement isn't going anywhere. Now, we are preparing for the next wave of Climate Strikes on December 6th. We call on local, state, and federal leadership to take bold action and treat this like the Climate Emergency that it is. If not, we'll use the power of our vote.

      We must carry this energy to the 2020 elections, and beyond to ensure real, bold action is taken to address the climate crises. This is history in the making, and it’s time we take back the narrative to save our futures.
