Kansas City Climate Strike (Youth Walkout & Rally) @ Theiss Park/Brush Creek

At 11:00 AM on Friday, September 20th, we will walk out of our schools, workplaces, homes, and businesses to assert our right to good jobs and a livable future in the face of climate breakdown.

This will kick off a day of action across KC to call on local governments and institutions to bring their actions in line with the urgency of our climate crisis.

There will be two actions following the walkout:

11:30AM: Climate Strike Action-Tell the Truth! (1601 McGee St.) An action hosted by Extinction Rebellion Kansas City targeting The Kansas City Star, geared toward the general public.

12:00PM: KC Climate Strike-Youth Action (424 Volker Blvd) An action hosted by Sunrise Movement KC, Fossil Free UMKC, and others. This action is youth-led, but all are welcome.

Then the main event, a Mass Rally/March in the evening:

5:00PM: KC Climate Strike Mass Rally/March (Mill Creek Park- West 43rd St & Broadway)

If you can’t join at one of the above locations, we encourage you to stand in solidarity outside of your school or workplace with signs or banners – post to social media using #ClimateStrike or #StrikeWtihUs and tag @sunrisemvmtkc!
