-Feel free to march or meet them at the Town Hall.

There will be music, poetry slams, artwork and more.
Mark your calendars, and ask family, friends, neighbors and work colleagues to join you.

“We believe that there is hope for change, but that it will not come without our immediate action,” said representatives of Wellesley College EnAct (the College’s Environmental Action Organization). “Through our local strike, we are demanding this action from our international, national, and local leaders. We want this strike to provide an opportunity for us to connect as a community and work towards climate justice together,” EnAct said.

 

“This shouldn’t be just the children’s responsibility,” Greta Thunberg, 16 year old Swedish student, raising global awareness of the risks posed by climate change. “Now, the adults also need to help us. We are calling for them to strike from their work, we need everyone. There is nothing we can’t do, if not you, then who else, if not now, then when?” Thunberg said.
