“A sea of students are taking part in climate strikes around the world, and on March 15, young activists in the U.S. will add their voices to the escalating #FridaysForFuture movement.

“Ever since 16-year-old climate activist Greta Thunberg called for the first global climate strike last month, it has become a weekly routine for students to skip class on Fridays to march for their futures and those of future generations.

“Now, kids, teens and young adults in the U.S. will take their own action with support from environmental groups such 350.org, Extinction Rebellion and the Sunrise Movement, Earther reported.

“If we’re not going to have a future, then school won’t matter any more,” one of the organizers, 13-year-old New Yorker Alexandria Villasenor*, told Earther about why American students should join the strike next month.”


Alexandria Villasenor an organizer for the March 15th Student Strike and is a Latina native of California and now NYC.
