What

On March 15th, 2019, NYC will join the international movement and strike to show the climate crisis is the most important issue humanity faces. Strikes will be taking place all across America along with over 40 countries across the globe! If you care about the future of our planet please join us!

First we will gather at City Hall, Washington Square Park, and outside the United Nations building at 11am, then we will all come together from across the city for a rally at Columbus Circle at 2pm.

We are striking to demand the following:

1. A reduction in greenhouse gas emissions in line with the October 2018 IPCC Special Report on Global Warming
2. World leaders come together and take action that ensures global warming remains under 1.5 degrees Celsius
3. U.S. leaders implement the Green New Deal and other legislative actions that help to solve the climate crisis

We are youth organized and youth centered, but all are welcome who are passionate about this issue and want to save our planet.
