How big was the global climate strike?
Do you want to see more government action to address climate change? Tell your Representatives how you feel.
The numbers are in from what was likely the largest climate strike in history. On Friday, September 20th, an estimated 4 million activists gathered in over 160 countries to protest a lack of corporate and government action on climate change. The exact numbers have not yet been confirmed, but current estimates place over 250,000 protestors at the main strike in New York City, as well as over 300,000 protestors in London and 1.4 million protestors across Germany.
The New York demonstration was a powerful reminder of the importance of our right to gather, speak out, and hold our elected officials accountable.
Do you agree with the protest? If so, how would you like to see Congress address our changing climate? Reach out to your Rep. by clicking the link above or let us know how you feel in the comments below.
