Zero Hour SF Youth Climate Justice March

July 21 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

The one thing that everyone working towards justice can agree on is that kids are the future. As
youth living in the Bay Area we demand that adults treat kids better- no border cruelty, no climate
chaos. On July 21st, young people will march in San Francisco and demand climate change
legislation. We march to protect the rights of the youth: we demand an end to border cruelty and
greenhouse gas emissions. While this is a youth-led movement, the march is open to all people
passionate about defending the safety and prosperity of future generations. Our movement is called
This is Zero Hour.

We say:
Dear Decision-Makers (Jerry Brown, Gavin Newsom, and our Senators)
-Replace all Fossil Fuel extraction with renewable energy sources and sustainable jobs!
-Stop the Delta Tunnels!
-Get Fossil Fuel money out of politics! Don’t accept money from the Fossil Fuel industry!
-A liveable planet means climate justice– we need justice for youth from our climate policy to our immigration policy.

Where: ICE Headquarters, 230 Sansome Street, San Francisco, marching to Aquatic Park, Beach Street, SF
What: Our event will include drumming, chanting, a speak-out, and a live mural painting project that anyone can participate in.
Who: Zero Hour is organized by youth ages 11-18. Youth and allies encouraged to participate!
Why: My generation did not create climate change, but as the climate crisis unfolds and elected officials fail to take meaningful action, young people are standing up to defend our planet. We cannot afford to wait any longer: we must ensure that our elected officials stop ignoring the needs of young people and their right to a safe, healthy, and clean environment.
