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 striking to demand the following:

  1. A reduction in greenhouse gas emissions in line with the October 2018 IPCC Special Report on Global Warming

  2. World leaders come together and take action that ensures global warming remains under 1.5 degrees Celsius

  3. U.S. leaders implement the Green New Deal and other legislative actions that help to solve the climate crisis

We are youth organized and youth centered, but all are welcome who are passionate about this issue and want to save our planet.


We, the youth of America, are striking because decades of inaction have left us with just 11 years (or less) to solve the climate crisis. We are striking because the necessary action to achieve the common-sense and vital goal of fighting climate change is not being prioritized. We are striking because marginalized communities across our nation —especially indigenous, black, and low income communities— are already disproportionately impacted by climate change, yet, few people in positions of power have acknowledged this reality, and even fewer have begun to confront it appropriately.

We are at a turning point in history. Our futures are 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, a fair and just transition to decarbonize the US economy, and other legislative action that combats the effects of climate change. We stand in solidarity with Greta Thunberg and all youth strikers worldwide as we demand action on this issue.

We are running out of time, and we won't be silent any longer. We, the youth of America, are striking because our present and future on this planet are at stake.

And we are determined to do something about it.
