“September 20th showed the world, once again, what young people are capable of. Youth organized and led 1,100+ strikes across the United States, with hundreds working for weeks and months on their local strikes. Young people are the foundation of the climate justice movement, and this is only the start because youth will keep organizing and striking until we get transformation action from those in power.”

Dillon Bernard, Director of Communications for Future Coalition, a youth-led nonprofit that coordinated the youth coalition of the September 20th Climate Strike.
