CA - Local teens organize to combat climate change

Thank you to these St. Francis High School Juniors taking the lead on climate!

Worldwide, "Fridays for Future" school walkouts in March brought together students from across 112 countries. Among them were St. Francis High School juniors Sindhu Vajrala and Jamie Minden, who co-founded the Silicon Valley Youth Climate Strike the same month, putting together resources to organize walkouts in under four days.

The chapter, which has since expanded to 20 members and five co-leads, is readying for its next march, set for Friday, Sept. 20.

The group has formed a coalition between local youth-led environmental groups, including Sunrise Movement, 350 Bay Area and Extinction Rebellion, to organize the event and is consulting with adult organizers from the Women's March, March for Science, and Mothers Out Front.
