Then, on Sunday, September 22, MoveOn is joining with other #StrikeWithUs partners to host a national organizing call to hear from climate action leaders, including the youth activists who have led the strikes, about what we can do next.
The call will be at 8:30 p.m. ET/5:30 PT. Just click here to RSVP. You can participate on Sunday from any device with the internet by going to the RSVP page—where you will get immediately plugged into more actions to take to fight the climate crisis.
Climate change is a dire crisis that demands urgent, large-scale, collective action at the community, state, regional, national, and global levels. We are seeing a movement emerge that is growing in political strength—forcing political candidates to talk in-depth about climate justice in ways they haven’t before and forcing corporations and local governments to act.
On this call, you’ll learn about some of the opportunities to take action following this historic climate strike.You’ll hear from
- Isra Hirsi, Executive Director of US Youth Climate Strikes and a leader in tomorrow’s strike, about plans for future strikes and escalations;
- Monica Mohapatra, from 350.org, about continuing actions around the country next week as part of an entire week of action on climate justice;
- Jon Barton, Deputy Director at the Service Employees International Union, on how to get engaged locally;
- And more!
Thanks for all you do.
–David, Kenia, Liia, Scott, and the rest of the team
P.S. There’s still time for you to find and join a climate strike action near you tomorrow. With over 1,000 events across the country, there is likely one near you! Then join us on the call on Sunday as we share our experiences from Friday and look to further actions ahead.
