March 15, Global Youth Climate Strike/NC Climate Strike
Inspired by Greta Thunberg from Sweden, March 15 will be a GLOBAL day of action with strikes taking place across the world, including several in North Carolina.
Here is the message from the Global Youth Climate Strike:
"We, the youth of America, are striking because decades of inaction has left us with just 11 years (or less) to solve the climate crisis. We are striking because the necessary action to achieve the common-sense and vital goal of fighting climate change is not being prioritized. We are striking because marginalized communities across our nation — especially indigenous, black, and low income communities — are already disproportionately impacted by climate change, yet, few people in positions of power have acknowledged this reality, and even fewer have begun to confront it appropriately."
Currently there are three strikes taking place in NC, with another one possibly taking place in Charlotte. https://www.facebook.com/climatestrikenc
