Youth Global Climate Strike

Date:
September 20 - September 27

Time:
12:00 am - 11:59 pm

Mobilize the youth in your faith community to stand up for climate justice September 20 - 27, 2019!  Youth around the world are organizing to strike on September 20 and take climate action through the week.  We hope you will support and join with the youth who are leading these actions.

Throughout Georgia, Climate Strikes are being organized to kick off the week, on Friday, September 20.  We have listed three strikes planned for September 20 below, and encourage you to attend! If you cannot attend a climate strike but want to participate in a different way, email the GIPL Team (info@gipl.org) or call Rev. Kate McGregor Mosley, Executive Director (404.377.5552) for ideas of ways to take faith climate action this week (and always!).
