Join UUSC and Allies for the Climate Strike on Friday, September 20

We must all join together in striking for a sustainable future.

By UUSC Staff on September 11, 2019

The Climate Crisis is the most pressing issue facing humanity and the planet today, which is why UUSC is joining the worldwide, youth-led Climate Strike on Friday, September 20 with UU Mass Action and the Unitarian Universalist Association to unite and strike for climate justice. 

UUSC staffers will be participating in the Boston-area Climate Strike while UUSC CEO and President Rev. Mary Katherine Morn will be speaking at the local Climate Strike event in Greenville, North Carolina. We will follow the lead of UU youth leaders, who we invite to join us at our office in Cambridge that morning to make signs and t-shirts.

Here’s how you can get involved:

  1. Find a Strike near you and sign up at the Climate Strike page. Also, please RSVP here in UU Mass Action’s form to let us know you will be joining if you are in the Greater Boston area or elsewhere in Massachusetts, and to stay up to date on news from the strike.
  2. Join UUSC’s Facebook Event and invite your friends! 
  3. If you’re in the Greater Boston area, meet up on September 20 between 9:00 AM and 10:00 AM at UUSC’s office in Cambridge for breakfast, sign-making and t-shirt decorating! We encourage those coming in from outside of Boston to park in Cambridge, meet us at the UUSC office at 689 Massachusetts Avenue, and take the train together to the strike.
  4.  At the Boston Strike, you can find find UUs for a song circle action at Boston City Hall at 10:30 AM.

Also, find downloadable posters for the Strike at our Signage page!

Please reach out to Ana Maria De La Rosa, UUSC Senior Organizer, with any questions. We’re excited for you to join us as we work together toward climate justice and a sustainable future!
