Meetup for Climate Strike on Friday, 20 September
Mon, Sep 16 1:17pm

For those who wish to participate in the Global Climate Strike on Friday (remember, it's a PD day, so school is closed), here is information to meet up with other ICS families.

11:45 - Meet at ST PAUL'S CHAPEL of Trinity Church (209 Broadway @ Vesey St.) [call or text Lee at 212-222-4676 if you don't see me.  Some faith groups are meeting here too.]

  • 12:00 - Assemble at Foley Square
  • 1:00 - March to Battery Park
  • 3:30-5:00 - Rally at Battery Park

This strike is led by 16-year-old activist Greta Thunberg along with youth around the world to demand climate action on behalf of their futures.  It kicks off a week of international activism in response to the UN’s Climate Change meeting.  If you are able, please come out and support the courageous youth in this urgent work.  Note that the NYC DOE is excusing students who attend the march from school.

If anyone is up for organizing sign-making beforehand or has other ideas, please pipe up.
