Millions of young climate activists around the world marched and protested to call attention to the climate crisis and demand action from their governments as part of the September 20th Global Climate Strike. PSR members joined in around the country to draw attention to the health emergency posed by climate change, including chapter contingents in Boston, Iowa City, Portland, OR, San Francisco, and Seattle.
