US Youth Climate Strike, a movement of youth fighting for the conservation of our planet will have a global day of climate action and first ever nationwide strike for climate in the US on Friday, March 15.

“We, the youth of America, are striking because decades of inaction has left us with just 11 years (or less) to solve the climate crisis. We are striking because the necessary action to achieve the common-sense and vital goal of fighting climate change is not being prioritized. We are striking because marginalized communities across our nation —especially indigenous, black, and low income communities— are already disproportionately impacted by climate change, yet, few people in positions of power have acknowledged this reality, and even fewer have begun to confront it appropriately. We are at a turning point in history.

Our futures are at stake. We call for radical legislative action to combat climate change and its countless detrimental effects on the American people. We are striking for the Green New Deal, a fair and just transition to decarbonize the US economy, and other legislative action that combats the effects of climate change. And we are determined to do something about it.” (Excerpted from youthclimatestrikeus.org)
