Boston Climate Strike

September 20 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

Boston Climate Strike

On September 20th, 2019, millions of people will strike around the world to demand action on the climate crisis. Join thousands in Boston at City Hall Plaza as we kick off a week of climate actions! This event is youth led and community supported.

#StrikeWithUs #StrikeWithUsBoston #ClimateStrike #ClimateStrikeMA

The Boston Climate Strike, on Friday Sept 20th, is part of a worldwide, youth led initiative growing out of the Fridays for a Future school strikes calling for a global week of action on Climate Sept 20-27. These actions are timed to coincide with the U.N. Climate Action Summit starting on Sept 23, to push global leaders to take the climate emergency seriously. The young people leading this effort locally have called on all of us to assemble at City Hall Plaza at 10AM, with a schedule as below. 

MAPA members will gather at City Hall Plaza at 10am to support and share our literature.  Wear MAPA shirts or buttons and bring signs boosting the Green New Deal or other appropriate messages.
