A Bit of Background
Extinction Rebellion is an international movement that uses non-violent civil disobedience in an attempt to halt mass extinction and minimise the risk of social collapse. We need you – whoever you are, however much time you have – to help build a powerful movement. Our vision of change involves mass participation. Together we are unstoppable. Youth is such an important part of the movement so us as high schoolers started our local chapter of Extinction Rebellion Youth. We are a group of 14-20 year olds working for climate justice.
“For way too long, the politicians and the people in power have gotten away with not doing anything to fight the climate crisis, but we will make sure that they will not get away with it any longer. We are striking because we have done our homework and they have not.”
