Join the Washtenaw Climate Strike September 20th

On September 20, three days before the UN Climate Summit in NYC, young people and adults will strike all across the US and world to demand transformative action be taken to address the climate crisis. This is planned to be the largest collective demonstration in human history. The Interfaith Council for Peace and Justice (ICPJ) will be joining the strike on UM’s campus and we hope you will too!

Washtenaw County Climate Strike

In Washtenaw County, high school teachers will walk out with their students, business owners will close their doors, professors from the University of Michigan will leave their lecture halls, faith leaders will join their congregations, unions will stand with their workers, and we will demand an end to business as usual and act on climate crisis.  

We, as a global society, are at a crossroads. We have a decision to make. Are we going to choose money or power, or are we going to choose the future? This strike is an invitation to choose us. Choose the kids, choose humanity, choose the future.

Our house is on fire — let’s act like it. We demand climate justice for everyone.

We hope you will join us!
