Students lead Global Climate Strike advocacy event
Students in the Friends School Green Club hosted an action today in support of the Global Climate Strike. The strike grew out of a weekly protest initiated by 16-year old Swedish climate activist, Greta Thunberg. Young people in over 150 countries are leading walkouts, calling and writing their legislators, and raising awareness around climate issues. Friends students participated in this monumental day of action by phoning and writing to both local and national elected officials. The student-led outreach and advocacy event filled up an entire classroom with eager participants!
