Silicon Valley Youth Climate Strike, March & Rally!

Greta Thunberg, the amazing 16-year-old Swedish climate activist who has been striking for the climate every Friday for the past year, has called on adults to join students in peaceful demonstrations for bold climate action on Friday, September 20th. With millions of youth and adults mobilizing all over the world and the country, this is likely to be the largest protest for climate justice in the planet's history. 

Come help us make history and have our kids' backs, so that they don't have to fight for a livable climate alone.

Here's the plan:

2:30-3:00pm: Our families' contingent will gather at the corner of Cahill & Montgomery next to San Jose's Diridon Station (65 Cahill St.)

3:00pm: March <1 mile from Diridon Station to San Jose City Hall (200 E. Santa Clara St.) 

While waiting for the rally to start, visit the tables of local grassroots climate action organizations, including Mothers Out Front

4:00-5:00pm: Rally at San Jose City Hall with inspiring cheers, speakers & songs, including Mayor Sam Liccardo, youth climate leaders, Asm. Ash Kalra, and Mothers Out Front member Susan! 

As climate hero Bill McKibben says: "One can be excused for despairing, but not for walking away. Especially at the most desperate moments, human solidarity is required. If a kid says help, you help." 

Please RSVP below so we'll know to look out for you--and to show how many people care. Thank you!
