Join us on Sept. 20th at the Denver Union Station at 11am. We will then march up 16th Street to the State Capitol (arriving around 12:30-1pm). At the Capitol we will rally for an end to fossil fuels and a rapid transition to a 100% clean renewable energy future.
Join the Colorado community Friday, July 19th at Commons Park at 11AM for a day of action for climate justice! We will be marching up 16th Street Mall to the Colorado State Capital where we will peacefully assemble and demonstrate a die-in to generate awareness around Colorado's growing dependency on fracking and oil extraction.
This strike is taking place the Friday before (but is separate of) Denver Pride Festival to show solidarity as the Two-Spirit and LGBTQ+ community for climate justice. We cannot have pride parades or festivals if we do not have clean air, water or earth. We also want to highlight the different struggles and movements occurring in our Denver and International communities. We believe climate justice is social justice, it's time we come together and fight for our Earth.
Join us on Saturday May 4th from 2-8pm at Que 4 Radio for a day of community! There will be local vendors/ small businesses, musicians, workshops, food and more! Essentially a fun time for everyone while supporting local Chicago small businesses and artists!
Join our coalition of partners on Friday May 3rd at the Denver Capitol Building on the west steps at 10am for a Global day of action for climate! Bring your best climate signs and stand with our youth!
We, the youth of America, are striking because the science says we have just a few years to transform our energy system, reduce our greenhouse gas emissions, and prevent the worst effects of climate change. We are striking because our world leaders have yet to acknowledge, prioritize, or properly address our climate crisis. We are striking because marginalized communities across our nation —especially communities of color, disabled communities, and low- income communities— are already disproportionately impacted by climate change. We are striking because if the social order is disrupted by our refusal to attend school, then the system is forced to face the climate crisis and enact change. With our futures at stake, we call for radical legislative action to combat climate change and its countless detrimental effects on the American people. We are striking for the Green New Deal, for a fair and just transition to a 100% renewable economy, and for ending the creation of additional fossil fuel infrastructure. Additionally, we believe the climate crisis should be declared a national emergency because we are running out of time.
Who stands to benefit from a Green New Deal? What's at stake? Join us at this Town Hall to hear leaders in our community discuss how a Green New Deal could be the biggest opportunity of our lifetime to organize for the future we need, and what that looks like for us.
Join us after the Denver Youth Climate Strike for our Open Mic Party. We want to make sure our peers have a safe place to go after the Strike so we can socialize with one another, EAT, and share our talents and stories. Did we mention there will be FREE FOOD?! We'll be at the Althea Center from 1-4PM on Friday March 15th, just west of the Colorado State Capital.
Denver's demands: On March 15th, 2019, Denver will join the international movement and strike to show the climate crisis is the most important issue humanity faces. Strikes will be taking place all across America along with over 40 countries across the globe! If you care about the future of our planet please join us!
We are looking for youth to get involved with our community in Denver and also provide opportunity to travel to other communities. If you or a young person you know is interested join us on January 25th at 6PM for free food, musical performances or contact us at email@example.com.
