On September 28, 2013, young people around the world will lead marches, rallies, and demonstrations to call attention to climate change and to ask our leaders to make protecting our planet a top priority. Events will be planned and led by youth but all are welcome and encouraged to attend.
In North Carolina, youth will lead a march and rally in downtown Raleigh with inspiring calls to action from youth leaders and climate advocates. Marchers will meet at Halifax Mall at 3:30 pm for a welcome and activities. The march will begin at 4:00 pm, circling the Capitol and the General Assembly building before returning to Halifax Mall for a program to include speakers, music, and more. More details about march location and logistics to come.
