Buffalo Youth Climate Strikes Again September 20, 2019
Buffalo Youth Climate Strike joins the Global Climate Strike again this month to demand a climate emergency from our elected officials during a global week of climate action on September 20 – 27. The week will kick off on September 20th, just a few days before the United Nation’s Climate Action Summit in New York City, when citizens around the world will walk out of school and work to join thousands of brave young people who demand climate action from the world’s leaders. We invite you to join the climate justice movement here in Western NY and stand with the Buffalo Youth Climate Strike!
Please see the message below from Buffalo Youth Climate Strike organizer and former WNY Environmental Alliance Youth Fellow, Ilyas Khan :
“The Buffalo Youth Climate Strike strikes again, and we need your help to make this our most powerful action yet! On September 20th the Youth of Western New York will be walking out in solidarity with global youth strikes and with the many communities impacted by Climate Change, #strikewithus. That same day we will be joined by various other local and regional organizations to #unitethestruggles and celebrate International Peace Day. As Western New Yorkers, we recognize our region will become a haven for climate refugees, so we are demanding our elected officials declare a climate emergency. To uphold that declaration, we youth are asking them to draft policy which justly addresses both symptoms of climate change and its causes, while also being inclusive and conscious of the marginalized communities which will be hardest hit by this crisis. This is a global issue, and it’s only getting worse. The time for action is now! Join us, September 20th, to demand a climate emergency. “
