September 20th is the launch of a global week of action.
Climate Emergency most threatens the lives of the young and rising generations. Fridays for Future, the Youth Climate Strike movement, XR Youth, This Is Zero Hour, Future Coalition and international allies have called on adults to help turn back the ecological catastrophe that hangs over their futures.
On September 20 and beyond, Extinction Rebellion NYC will stand in the streets with youth climate strikers in New York. We invite everyone (all ages) to join us with family and friends to amplify the demands of the youth strikers in one voice.
