Climate Strike Art Build
May 16 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm PDT
Come make art for the ongoing Youth Climate Strike in Gig Harbor that local high school student Phineas has been growing! Phineas and his friends have taken the bold action to hold a climate strike every Friday as part of the global youth climate strike movement. This is event will be held in our brand new community space and we welcome you to come get an early peek at the inside of this amazing place.
This past March over 200 young people of Tacoma held a powerful rally at Wright Park and joined well over a million people globally who are striking from school to demand immediate action on the climate crisis. Around the world, students have begun holding school strikes every Friday under the motto “Fridays for Future” to demand that adults take meaningful actions to address the looming climate crisis.
Right here in the Puget Sound, several young leaders have started their own regular school strikes and we at 350 Tacoma want to do everything we can to support these young people.
Whether you are a young person thinking of starting a strike at your own school or simply want to come help make signs for Phineas and his friends to wave at their Fridays for Future strikes, this art making event is for all local young people who are passionate about standing up for the future of our planet.
