The strike comes days before the September 23rd Climate Action Summit at the UN General Assembly.
NYC public schools have announced that they will not penalize students for participating (provided they have parental permission). Several large corporations are joining the strike as well. Patagonia and Burton plan to close in solidarity, while over 1,000 employees at Amazon announced that they will walk out to protest the company’s current carbon footprint.
