Global Climate Strike
Free | All day
People across the world will walk out of work or school, or not attend at all, on Friday to call attention to the Earth’s climate crisis, and there are at least two events planned in Louisville. The Kentucky Youth Climate Strike encourages protesters to meet at Jefferson Square Park at 10 a.m. for an all-day rally. At noon, representatives will help deliver a letter to Mayor Greg Fischer’s office, where Extinction Rebellion Kentucky, will kick off its strike, which includes an attempt to slow down rush hour traffic at 4:44 p.m. and a 7 p.m. meet-up and community celebration at Bardstown Road and Baxter Avenue. International organizers say that “these Climate Strikes won’t solve the climate crisis alone. What this moment can do is demonstrate that people are no longer willing to continue with business as usual.”
