    Sebastopol Youth Strike


    When
    Friday, September 20th;12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
    Where Sebastopol Plaza
    Event Website Add to Google Calendar
    We’ve endured another summer of record-breaking heatwaves, floods, and refinery explosions. Enough is enough. No more government inaction and half-measures.

    It’s time to build a renewable energy economy that works for everyone. Join us in the streets September 20 and the week after to demand climate justice for all.

    Most of America’s greenhouse gas emissions come from burning oil, coal and gas, also known as fossil fuels. These greenhouse gas emissions, and the fossil fuel billionaires responsible for them, are pushing our climate to the brink of collapse and hurting our communities in real time. This is especially true for those of us who are poor, people of color, and otherwise marginalized.

    All forms of inequality get magnified by climate change. From housing to healthcare, everything gets worse when a wildfire or hurricane is at your doorstep, or when oil and gas billionaires come to town to build a pipeline or a refinery in your backyard. While we suffer, our elected officials keep pandering to the billionaires responsible for this crisis.

    It doesn’t have to be this way. Working together, we can take action within our communities and across differences to build a more just and sustainable future. For over a year, youth across America have been catalyzing the work to do just that. On September 20th, all of us are called to join young people in the streets to demand climate justice for all. In the week that follows, we’ll continue to mobilize to create the changes, and the solutions, we know we need.

    Let's join the millions of others, especially young people, inspired to show up in the streets to resist the use of fossil fuels and work for a renewable energy economy.
