About the Strike

Following the lead of Swedish activist Greta Thunberg, young people and allies in Massachusetts are joining the global call to action on September 20, and going on STRIKE! All are invited and encouraged to join. 

On September 20, three days before the UN Climate Summit in NYC, people of all ages will strike all across the US and world to demand transformative action be taken to address the climate crisis. Millions will take the streets to demand a right to a future.

“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. On September 20, for the first time, the adults are joining us.” (Strike with Us)
