This September, millions of us will walk out of our workplaces and homes to join young climate strikers on the streets and demand an end to the age of fossil fuels.
Our house is on fire — let’s act like it!

Strike with 350 Madison and our allies across the Midwest!

We’ll have THREE opportunities to call for immediate climate action September 20–28:

If not us, who? If not now, when?

It will take ALL OF US to turn things around.
Bill McKibben: “We need you to be a part of it because we need every age involved. Young people have been leading here but now it’s the job of the rest of us to back them up.”
Greta Thunberg: “This shouldn’t be the children’s responsibility. Now the adults also need to help us. We are calling for them to strike from their work because we need everyone. There is nothing we can’t do.”
Listen to Greta Thunberg, other student climate activists, and adult supporters from around the world explain why they plan to strike:

Tar Sands

The Tar Sands Campaign is fighting Enbridge tar sands pipelines in Wisconsin. Our aims are to block expansion of Line 61 and to halt plans for an adjacent Line 66. We support efforts led by those most impacted, including tribes, landowners, and affected community members.

Divest & Defund

The Divest & Defund Team works to convince institutions that investments in fossil fuels are not only ethically and fiscally irresponsible, but are literally wrecking the planet we call home—all for profit. We are currently focusing on banks that fund pipeline projects.

Climate Solutions

The Climate Solutions Campaign focuses on taking responsibility for our own fossil fuel use. We work to create and change policies that impact our energy use and nurture a culture of reducing energy use and using clean, renewable energy to reduce our carbon footprint.
