Parents Are on Climate Strike

Join Us in the Streets and Online

 

 

Watch and share our video!

 

On September 20, three days before the UN Climate Summit in NYC, young people and adults will strike all across the US and world to demand real action to address the climate crisis.

Mothers Out Front will join the global climate strike and are asking all parents, aunts, uncles (and anyone who cares about children) to lead the way and encourage all adults to join. We will show the youth of the world that they are not alone. Once the strikes have ended, we will hold all elected officials and business leaders responsible for doing all they can to ensure a swift and just transition to clean renewable energy. 

This toolkit has been created especially to support parents and grandparents who are concerned about our childrens’ future and want to support actions and strikes in September. We will join the youth strikers fighting for a future for their generation, and demand action to avoid climate breakdown, end the extractive fossil fuel industry, and usher in a swift, just, and complete transition to clean renewable energy.

The Parent Constituent Support Group is coordinated by Mothers Out Front. Please contact Marnese Jackson at marnese.jackson@mothersoutfront.org to contribute more resources and get involved.

On September 20, young people are leading a #ClimateStrike for action on the climate crisis, the biggest threat to our future. 

We, as a global society, are at a crossroads. We have a decision to make. Are we going to choose money or power or are we going to choose the future? This strike is an invitation to choose us. Choose the kids, choose humanity, choose the future.
