Students from Princeton University and Princeton High School will host a local climate strike from 12:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 20, on Hinds Plaza.
This event is being held as part of a Global Climate Strike. Millions of people plan to gather in locations around the world to demand that leaders take decisive action to address climate change, ahead of the United Nations Climate Summit in New York.
“We’re calling for a fossil fuel-free future and environmental justice,” reads a statement from Princeton organizers. “While similar strikes have been held in the past, we expect this to be the largest climate strike yet.”
The rally will feature several speakers, including high school students, university students, and Princeton Professor Rob Nixon. There will also be a post-rally march through town and the Princeton University campus.
