Let’s Talk Climate
As 2021 begins, America’s communities are challenged by a pandemic, economic recovery, and an urgent need for climate action. Some are rising to the challenge. Hear from one case study…
Join us for the next Orlando Climate Strike!
As Floridians, we live in the state that will bear the biggest effects of the climate crisis. Help us send a message that we can do better in climate action! Last climate strike, we made history in Florida as some of the 600,000 strikers across the U.S. and 4 million strikers worldwide who took to the streets to call for climate action on Sept. 20. We’ve seen Orlando’s climate strikes grow from 11 people in March to 35 people in May to now more than 300 strong! And this is still only the beginning. But we need your help to grow the movement in Central Florida.
We will be meeting in-front of Orlando’s City Hall, holding handmade recycled signs, hearing speeches from environmental leaders, peacefully marching through downtown Orlando, and convening with an after party event TBD to encourage further climate action conversations for attendees.
*Please bring a homemade sign on recycled material regarding climate action you would like to see in Florida.
*Please WEAR GREEN to support this day of action.
Swedish 16-year-old Greta Thunberg started Fridays For Future, a movement that has sparked students in 150 different countries to strike weekly, organizing by the tens, hundreds and even thousands to stand up to local leaders and demand for action to mitigate climate change. On September 20, there was be a Global Climate Strike, which invites adults to join students in solidarity, amplifying their calls to action. December 6th, let’s make our voice heard more than ever!
Why are we striking?
Florida needs to be a nation-wide leader in climate action but is falling short. Florida should be leaders in renewable energy, zero waste initiatives, protecting vulnerable ecosystems, environmental justice, and respect of indigenous land and sovereignty.
This is the demands of the Global Climate Strike led by Strike With Us:
