We need to follow our children and take real action to let our local, state and federal representatives know that this is a climate emergency and needs crisis-level thinking and crisis-level collaboration. Many of us have jobs that won't let us strike every Friday, but that doesn't mean we have to just sit on the sidelines.
As the awesome Greta Thunberg says, "Activism works. So act"
I would like to meet and work with other Bay Area adults and youth who feel the same sense of urgency and want to act.
Some possible actions, and I would love to hear from you:
- Take a long lunch every Friday and "strike" in front of Nancy Pelosi's San Francisco office, demanding crisis-level action to stop extraction of new carbon and cut carbon emissions by half in 12 years
- Have full-day strikes in coordination with global Friday climate strikes
- Work together to identify clear, actionable, high impact demands that will make the difference we need to make
I can arrange meetings at WeWork locations, as I am a WeWork employee, where we can meet and strategize. Let's do this!
