We made history, in Madison and around the globe!
More than 7 million people took to the streets around the globe the week of September 20–27, 2019. In one of the largest coordinated protests in history, they demanded immediate action to address the climate emergency.
Here in Madison, more than 4,000 took part, first gathering at Madison Gas & Electric to demand that the utility transition to 100% renewables by 2030, and then marching to the Capitol to call on Governor Tony Evers to declare a climate emergency, finishing the day with deafening calls for climate justice in the Capitol Rotunda.
Youth Climate Action Team (YCAT) led the Madison event, with support from 350 Madison, Sierra Club, First Unitarian Society, Extinction Rebellion, Wisconsin Network for Peace & Justice, and an array of other organizations. Watch YCAT’s short but powerful video overview of the day:
350 Madison’s talented photographers took wonderful photos and video of the event. Here are links to their albums:
