Global climate strike Santa Barbara with Fridays for Future: September 27 at Noon, De La Guerra Plaza

THANK YOU, SANTA BARBARA!

Tag us in your photos!

@ClimateStrikeSB #ClimateStrikeSB

Hundreds of people walked out of their schools, workplaces, and homes and joined the global #ClimateStrike at De La Guerra plaza on 9/20/19 and 9/27/19. We demanded immediate action on climate change from government leaders, businesses, and our fellow citizens. We demonstrated that the people of Santa Barbara will not tolerate the business-as-usual policy of deny, delay, and deflect. Let's continue to grow this movement. Visit our partner organizations' websites and get involved with their ongoing efforts. Take a pledge or call your elected officials because #WhatIDoMatters and #WhatWeDoMatters. Together we can stop the #ClimateCrisis, but only if we persist in this fight for a better future.
