Climate Strike Activists
Thank you, young people of the world, for helping energize the rest of us to address the urgency of climate change! Among the state’s organizers of the local Climate Strike on September 20 are the Columbus area’s Sophie Roome, with the Sierra Club’s Ready for 100 campaign, Catherine Adams of Westerville High School, and local environmental activist Elizabeth Hixon. Many, many more teens, youth, and young professionals led the effort in Columbus. Several hundred people gathered mid-day at the Ohio Statehouse to call upon our leaders and the populace to make the changes necessary to prevent climate change from destroying the planet. Kudos to all the kids who bravely walked out of school to join the strike downtown, or to resolutely skip classes to stand outside their school buildings in solidarity with the international strike.
