What

We are in a CLIMATE EMERGENCY!

This September 20-27th, millions of people around the world will walk out of our workplaces and homes to join youth climate strikers on the streets and demand an end to the age of fossil fuels, corporate pollution, and environmental destruction.

As part of the Global Climate Strike join forces and raise voices with Triangle students, faith communities, and those who care about our planet this September 20th as millions of us around the world walk out of our homes and workplaces to join young people in the streets for the biggest global climate strike yet. We will learn about the impacts of climate change, interact with Triangle groups taking actions to avert the looming disaster, and take personal action to make our concerns known.

Our house is on fire. The climate crisis is an emergency but we’re not acting like it. Invite your colleagues, friends, family, clubs, and community. We need everyone!!

Gather at the Halifax Mall. Part of our event will be a “parade” going around the education tables and gathering pieces of the puzzle/quilt with people joining along the way, that we will use to create a beautiful visual in the center, showing how we need all of the connections and pieces to this puzzle to help with the climate emergency we are in. We will deliver letters to the NC General Assembly (Sen. Berger and Speaker Moore) and some of our own legislators, Governor Cooper's office, NC Public Utility Commission, and NC Department of Environmental Quality. There will be suggested actions people can take the following week during the Global Week of Climate Action through September 27 with phone calls and personal actions. More as we continue to organize!
