Join San Francisco youth as we strike for the Green New Deal and other necessary actions to solve the climate crisis. If you are unable to join us, consider organizing a strike, walkout, or other action on your campus! Learn more about our movement at youthclimatestrikeus.org
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.
We are at a turning point in history. Our futures are at stake. We call for radical legislative action to combat climate change and its countless detrimental effects on the American people. We are striking for the Green New Deal, a fair and just transition to decarbonize the US economy, and other legislative action that combats the effects of climate change. We stand in solidarity with Greta Thunberg and all youth strikers worldwide as we demand action on this issue.
We are running out of time, and we won’t be silent any longer. We, the youth of America, are striking because our present and future on this planet are at stake.
And we are determined to do something about it.
On March 15, students across the US and the world will be going on strike, because decades of inaction have left us with only 11 years to avoid the worst effects of climate change. We’ll be striking to demand a Green New Deal, because we deserve good jobs and a livable future!

March 15th, Global Climate Strike For Future! Call to the youth of the world.
In 2015, our governments committed in Paris to protecting our future by providing a safe pathway well below 2C with Social and Climate Justice..
Three years have passed, and our future looks bleaker than ever!
The greedy guess that 3C warming is ok. Climate scientists have evidence that even 2C will cause massive starvation, drought, fire tornados, floods, wars and death.
All because today’s adults do not care about tomorrow. They are stealing our future right in front of our eyes!
The adults are not mature enough to tell it how it is, even this they leave to us children!
And why should we be studying for a future that soon may be no more, when no one is doing anything to save that future? And what is the point of learning facts when the most important facts clearly means nothing to our society?
What use is education when our governments are not listening to the educated?
Today we use 100 million barrels of oil every single day. There are no politics to change that. There are no rules to keep that oil in the ground.
We can’t save the world by playing by the rules. Because the rules have to be changed.
Greta Thunberg has inspired us, by striking every Friday in front of her Swedish parliament.
Since August, 2018, many thousands of students, have been striking in front of 300 parliaments and town halls in over 30 countries worldwide.
And now on March 15, we will all create a Deep strike together! To show the Climate Crisis is a Crisis! Join Us!
