'm Sara, and I just started high school a few weeks ago. It's pretty good so far — I like my classes and my teachers and friends.
But this coming Friday, I'm going to leave school to join the
DC Climate Strike
downtown. Greta Thunberg, a teenager in Sweden, started striking last year, and this Friday, young people like me will be leading over 500 climate strikes to call for immediate climate action, as leaders gather for the United Nations Climate Action Summit.
Will you strike with me on Friday?
Teens and grown-ups from my synagogue, Adat Shalom, are planning to come with me to the strike on Friday. We'll march with people from other congregations. Adat Shalom will also have a great band with them! We already have solar panels on our building and a vegetable garden, but we now need everyone to speak out, too!
