We invite students, staff and faculty to participate in the Sept 21 Global Climate Strike Youth Climate Rally. 10am-1pm at City Council Chambers.

WHAT: From September 20-27, people worldwide will walk out of schools, workplaces and homes to urge an end to the age of fossil fuels. They are demanding climate justice for everyone.

In San Antonio, all are invited to participate in the Youth Climate Rally in support of the Global Climate Strike.
WHO: South Texans who care about the future of our planet.
Organizations include Operation Climate SA, Defend the Depths, March for Science SA, Ignition Green, Sunrise Movement, 350.org and the Alamo Group of the Sierra Club. Others are welcome to join in.
WHEN: Saturday, September 21, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

WHERE: Assemble at the front steps of the City Council Chambers, Downtown San Antonio 114 W. Commerce Ave., San Antonio, TX 78205 (see map)

WHY:
• To raise awareness and take action regarding climate change.
• To support San Antonio’s Climate Action and Adaption Plan (CAAP), also known as SA Climate Ready.
• To urge SA City Council to vote to pass the CAAP.
• To support the Green New Deal.
• To encourage individuals to take steps in their own lives to reduce their own carbon footprint.
• To urge people to vote with our planet’s future in mind in local, state, and national elections.

Strikers and marchers are assembling to draw attention to the UN Climate Action Summit 2019, taking place in New York City on September 23. Many activists tracked Greta Thunberg’s journey across the ocean to NYC. The outspoken Swedish teen’s role in the UN Summit and the September 21 Youth Summit is expected to be newsworthy.

Helotes student Parth Ghawghawe, founder of Defend the Depths, is striking at the City Council Chambers every Friday until the September 21 march.
