On September 20th, millions of people will walk out of their workplaces and homes to join young climate strikers from around the world and demand action on climate change and justice for everyone. The National Wildlife Federation is standing in solidarity with global youth to deliver this important message to our leaders, in order to protect air, water, and land for all people and wildlife.
We’re supporting this historic climate protest because we refuse to sit back and watch vulnerable wildlife like our New England moose disappear.
The Arctic and the Amazon are burning. The Midwest is flooding. Endangered species like the woodland caribou are disappearing before our eyes. Rising ocean temperatures and shifting weather patterns that contribute to these impacts are directly linked to climate change. We must work together to solve the climate crisis, because wildlife can’t wait.
That’s why we’ll be marching in person in New York City, Missoula, MT, Washington, D.C., and other cities around the U.S.ーand we hope you’ll join in with us.
We are counting on you to help us fight for climate action and protect vulnerable people and wildlife in America and across the world, and join the biggest global climate protest in history. Please forward this to friends and family so they can ‘virtually strike’ with you.
Thank you, Shannon Heyck-Williams Advisor, Climate & Energy National Wildlife Federation Action Fund
