Join in Climate Strike Event
Sep 01, 2019 04:17PM
On September 20, millions of people worldwide will walk out of their classes, jobs and homes as part of a Global Climate Strike, with many organized events taking place nationwide.
“One day of striking won’t solve everything, but it will show those in power that we refuse to stand by in the face of climate crisis,” says Tamara Toles O’Laughlin, North American director of 350.org, a renewable-energy action nonprofit that is working to organize weeklong events. “It’ll show the world who the real villains of the story are. And if we’re numerous and loud enough, it will be the spark that helps turn the tide. And that’s all we really need.”
Location: Plaza side of Charlotte-Mecklenburg Government Center, 600 E. 4th St. from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m., rain or shine. For more information, visit 350.org.
