UAW 4121 - UW Works Because We Do

Global Climate Strike TODAY

Graphic with the words "Climate Strike Friday Sept. 20 Seattle" and yellow caution tape reading "Caution: Climate Emergency"
“As we enter this new geologic era, youth around the world are raising their voices to heed the warnings of science and seize this crucial window of opportunity to stop the escalation of global warming. By joining young people on September 20th and striking for the climate, we strengthen the climate justice movement and embolden our leaders to set forward-looking policies for a more equitable, resilient, clean energy future.“

Read more in our OpEd in The Urbanist, from members in math, climate science, pharmacology, and the Evans School, then:

Join us at 12:30pm at the upper level of the lightrail to head to City Hall.

Bring water, comfortable walking shoes, and light rain jacket, and check out these recommendations on How to Strike, from Sarah Myhre.
