This spring, from Earth Day to May Day, we’re going to take bold action to confront the climate crisis.
April 22-24 -- Youth Leading on Climate
Between April 22 and 24 young people are organizing a robust series of events ranging from school strikes to civil disobedience on Capitol Hill. We will support and lift up these activities and while leaving space for youth to lead in this important moment.
April 27-May 1 -- #ShutDownDC
Throughout the week of April 27th we’ll shut down business as usual with disruptive actions each day, culminating in a mass mobilization that brings the nation’s capital to a halt on May 1. Each day of the week will focus on a theme to highlight the ways that the climate crisis threatens our communities and lifts up our opportunities to build resilient alternatives.
