MOTHERS OUT FRONT JOINS THE GLOBAL CLIMATE STRIKES
National movement of mothers stand with youth to call for real action to address the climate crisis
BOSTON- September 13, 2019 - Mothers Out Front announces its support of the youth strikes during the Global Week of Action. Mothers will be joining rallies across the country to stand with youth in their call to address the climate crisis.
“As mothers, we feel the urgent need to lead the way forward to a clean energy economy and a livable climate,” said Ellen van Bever, Mothers Out Front National Leadership Team member of Cambridge, Massachusetts. “We have until 2030 to cut carbon emissions by half. The denial and inaction of prior generations have led to the mess we are in. To the youth around the world who are planning to strike this September 20th—you are not alone. We assure you that mothers will join the global climate strike and lead the way for other adults to join.”
Mothers Out Front has been convening parents around the country in an alliance in advance of the September 20-27th strikes. We provided training, resources and a space for planning, organizing and connecting to events around the US.
Mothers Out Front members will be at youth strikes all across the country.
