Young people around the world are coming forward to lead marches, rallies, and demonstrations to call attention to climate change and to ask our leaders to make protecting our planet a top priority.
In North Carolina, youth will lead a march and rally in downtown Raleigh with inspiring calls to action from young leaders and climate advocates. Marchers will meet at Halifax Mall at 3:30 pm for a welcome with “Save the Planet” craft activities provided by the Scrap Exchange and featuring special musical guests Ace and T-Bone. The march will begin at 4:00 pm, circling the Capitol and the General Assembly before returning to Halifax Mall for a program to include speakers, music, and more.
