TAKE ACTION

Donate! Your donations will go into printing posters, ensuring the strike is accessible, making sure we have a working sound system, and more. Donations help a lot, so please donate if you can!

Upload art to your social media, or share it with your class! You can also make banners to put up on your windows using our banner guide!

Make an announcement about the strike! If your teacher gives you permission, ask if you can post an announcement on your school's learning platform!

Talk to your teachers! You could ask them to make an announcement about Earth Week, ask them not to assign any major assessments, or ask if you could speak in class about the events.

Call and email your State Representatives and Senators to let them know you support important climate-based legislation! If you don't know how to do this, you can use our toolkit.

Be aware of events near you, pay attention to politics on local, national, and global scales, and be active!

What is the Climate Crisis?

The actions of humans and corporations are causing our planet's climate to change. Global temperatures are rising, storms are getting worse and more common, sea levels are rising, and hundreds of species are going extinct every day. The climate crisis is not something far off into the future, it is happening now. Climate change is already killing people and destroying their homes. If we do nothing, the crisis will continue to worsen, harming more people, and ultimately making our home uninhabitable. 

 

Vocabulary

Climate Injustice: A term describing how the effects of the Climate Crisis and how the disregard shown to the environment by corporations and the government has a disproportionate impact on communities of color and low-income communities. 

The Green New Deal: A piece of legislation that was written in response to the Climate Crisis. Its aim is to convert our economy into a more environmentally sustainable economy, and to get to net-zero greenhouse gas emissions and 100% renewable energy by 2030.

The Red Deal: A piece of legislation created to add on to the Green New Deal to make it more inclusive to Indigenous peoples, who are disproportionately affected by the crisis. It was written on the basis that we need structural and mass change, and we need to return the power to the people. It was written by the Red Nation, a group of Indigenous peoples.
