Have you heard about the Global Climate Strike?
Bring your friends, family and neighbors to join many Seattle climate leaders and groups on Friday, Sept. 20th!
Statement from the coalition of youth organizers and allies:
Youth around the world have been striking for their right to a healthy future, and they are calling on all of us to join them. That’s why on Sept. 20, we will be walking out of our schools, workplaces and homes to join millions of people around the world demanding climate justice and an end to the age of fossil fuels. The Global Climate Strike is shaping up to be the largest climate mobilization in history. It kicks off a week of global action that will use art, music, stories and nonviolent direct action to disrupt business-as-usual and create the climate justice future we need.
Join us for a peaceful & powerful youth-centered mobilization. We are a broad coalition of youth leaders and adult allies all across the Seattle area, and we are demanding climate action at scale with the crisis: no new fossil fuel projects, just and equitable climate solutions to transition to 100% renewable energy, and holding those most responsible for the climate crisis accountable.

Phase One: Climate Justice Fest
Time: 9am – 12pm
Location: Cal Anderson Park
Everyone can be an activist! Come to learn, engage, and form real connections to many of the organizations involved with the climate crisis in the Seattle region. We will take over the park with each partner organization in the coalition bringing their skills and voices and contributing in ways that help them shine, and help you learn about their crucial work and powerful stories. This is not a tabling event but actually an interactive, playful, festival learning environment with trainings, games, music, art, street theater demos, teach-ins, and lots of chances to connect with the movement in ways that activate and excite you.
Phase Two: March to City Hall, Rally
Time: 12pm-1pm (march), rally begins at 1pm

March with us as we join in coalition to rally at the largest seat of power in our region: City Hall. This central rallying location is also a place to converge with other marchers from across the City of Seattle to raise our voices for meaningful action in the face of the climate crisis.
