Alameda Climate Strike
September 20, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
September 20th is the global climate strike. We are calling for everyone to join us. This past month, CASA Youth has been planning an “Alameda Climate Strike”, with different tiers of engagement so that anyone can participate in the global action. We will also be asking teachers to conduct teach-ins throughout the school day, where they will lead classroom discussions around the climate crisis. The final tier involves Alameda students taking public transportation and joining the SF climate strike itself.
Alameda Student Meeting Location is Fruitvale BART Station @ 9:00 AM on Sept 20th. Look for students with signs saying “Climate Strike”!!
What is the significance of September 20th?
On September 20, three days before the UN Climate Summit in NYC, young people and adults will strike all across the US and world to demand transformative action be taken to address the climate crisis. For more information on the global movement, please visit https://strikewithus.org/.
What are the four tiers of engagement?
Some students find difficulty in participating in civil disobedience due to conflicts with grades or attendance. We do not wish to alienate anyone who wishes to get involved. To help people participate without pushing them to leave school, we have organized FOUR “tiers of engagement,” incrementing from least risk-averse to most risk-averse.
Tier 1: “11 Actions You Can Take For Our Earth”
Tier 2: Moment of Recognition
Tier 3: Die-in
Tier 4: Strike
