The Kentucky Student Environmental Coalition and Student Strike for Climate Justice invites everyone who cares about a safe climate future to join our Student Strike 4 Climate on February 22nd - students standing up when our politicians won’t.

12 YEARS LEFT. That is the rallying cry beginning to resonate across the world. 12 years until the point of no return. Political leaders are not doing enough to ensure that there will be a future, so our generation is taking a stand to demand that there will be.

Join us on University of Louisville's campus (Humanities Quad) to rally for climate justice at 2pm; meet us at Mayor Fischer's office downtown at noon, or spend the day writing to public officials, marching for climate justice, or just sitting outside your local government building demanding change, like 16 year old phenom Greta Thunberg.

On February 22nd, school students are striking to tell our politicians to take us seriously and start treating climate change for what it is: a crisis and the biggest threat to our generation and generations to come.

Everyone is invited. Tens of thousands of students around the world will join us. If you’re not a student, take the day off and join us in solidarity!
