Youth Convergence at the People’s Climate March


I’m sure you’ve heard that on Sunday, September 21st, world leaders are coming to New York City for a historic summit on climate change. Activists and environmentalists from across the country will be marching in solidarity to send those world leaders a peaceful and positive message. And the message is that we demand action on climate change.

The day before, organizers for the People’s Climate March will be holding a youth-led convergence with an intentional focus on youth power, identity and leadership development. At the convergence, there will be sessions, workshops, and open space where we will organize within a framework grounded in intersectionality, justice, movement building, and long-term systemic analysis.

The hope is that attendees will leave the convergence having built relationships that will support the fabric of strong, strategic progress in all of our movements.
