Join the Global Climate Strike in NYC
September 24 @ 3:00 PM – 6:00 PM
Join Fridays for Future USA (FFF USA) and Fridays for Future New York City (FFF NYC) in the Global Climate Strike, as world leaders converge at the United Nations in the lead-up to UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) in early November.
3:00 pm: Gather at City Hall Park.
March to Battery Park.
4:30–6:00pm: Speakers and performers sharing youth climate demands
With the recent Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report, it is even clearer that the solution to the climate crisis is right in front of us – yet those in power refuse to act for the greater good. This student-led event will demand that our elected officials take action on the climate crisis!
Even if you’re not a student, your presence and support is welcome and very necessary!
The international narrative for the September 24 Global Strike is #UprootTheSystem – amplifying the voices of frontline, marginalized, and Most Affected People And Areas (MAPA), and their experiences dealing with the worst effects of the climate crisis. MAPA and predominantly Global South communities experience disproportionate climate effects due to the historic pollution and extraction by the Global North.
Coalition Partners: NY Renews, Extinction Rebellion NYC, 350 Brooklyn, New York Youth Climate Leaders, Sunrise NYC, and others.
