Dear Local Group Leaders –

With 280 Climate Strike events registered across the US so far, September 20th is shaping up to be one of the largest ever climate mobilizations. We hope that your organizing is going well!

As we are running full speed to organize for September 20th, we wanted to take a moment to remind you that many local 350 groups are also organizing beyond September 20th ― including actions throughout the International Week of Climate Action.

Local 350 group leaders from Colorado, Massachuttes, Seattle, Portland (OR), SF Bay Area, Madison and San Diego have written this blog to articulate why they are organizing escalated, disruptive actions for climate justice throughout the whole week.

As we move toward September 20th, it’s important to remember that the call from the youth leaders that started it all was never a call for a single day of action. The call that came from these remarkable youth leaders was to use September 20th to “kickstart a week of climate action with a worldwide strike for the climate.” It was to use September 20th to “unleash mass resistance” in the week afterwards, a week during which the United Nations and world leaders are gathering in New York to talk about the global response to the climate emergency.

Many local groups will be responding to that call ― and we hope you will too.

We’ll be discussing the week of action on the climate strike webinars on both August 28th (this Wednesday) and September 11th. You can register for those webinars here.

In solidarity,

Alec Connon (350 Seattle), on behalf of the 350 climate strike organizing team
