Amherst College Climate Strike

September 27, 2019 - 10:00 am to 1:00 pm (already occurred)

In the face of the climate crisis, we refuse to do nothing. Instead, strike on September 27 with other students, educators, and workers from around the world on a Global Day of Action. Starting at 10 a.m. on the First-Year Quad, we’ll hold teach-ins to educate ourselves and peers about what we can do about climate change, the injustice inherent in climate change, and how we got into this crisis. At 12:30 p.m., we’ll rally on the quad in solidarity with other alarmed people around the world, taking control of the narrative around climate change. Representative Mindy Domb will speak, followed by students sharing their personal experiences with the climate crisis.
Join us in this global movement. Don’t go to your classes. Don’t go to work. Don’t teach, and cancel your classes. In other words, do nothing that you would ordinarily do. If we continue to go about our lives like nothing is wrong, nothing will ever change.
