This September, millions across the world will heed the call of youth climate strikers — like 16-year-old climate activist Greta Thunberg — by walking out of their schools, homes, and places of work to join a Global #ClimateStrike.
We’re changing the terms of discourse by addressing the climate crisis with the urgency required by the science. In service of this aim, we’re embracing the concept of a general strike as a necessary form of civil protest against the “business as usual mindset” that has brought us to the brink of climate catastrophe. California's Central Coast has already seen the fatal and destructive consequences of the climate crisis firsthand. We cannot afford to wait any longer for climate justice.
A rally in front of Santa Barbara City Hall (De La Guerra Plaza) is scheduled for Noon on Sep. 27th, with: numerous partner organizations providing information and action items, a diverse slate of speakers, art projects, and a march to follow the rally. Attendees are encouraged to walk, bike, bus, and carpool to the event and to be conscious of plastics in their protest signs.
With Fridays for Future, everyone is encouraged to participate wherever you are and in whatever capacity you're able to, by posting a picture of you and your fellow climate strikers on social media.
