In an effort to address the climate crisis, students in Mount Vernon plan to join together for a global climate strike.
The Mount Vernon strike will take place on December 6 from 3-4 p.m. at the Posey County Courthouse.
The climate comes after several fires engulfed California, causing millions without power and forcing tens of thousands to evacuate.
The Climate Strike is a multigenerational and intersectional movement, with youth-led organizations leading national organizing efforts with support from an adult coalition, including organizations such as Greenpeace, Sierra Club, Greenfaith, Hip Hop Caucus, NRDC, SEIU, and March On.
