This morning scores of students in Baltimore are marching in solidarity with the Global Climate Strike: a worldwide walk-out to underscore the urgency of climate change and to demand action from political leaders around the globe. We talk with two local organizers: Trinity Eimer, a senior at The Bryn Mawr School, and Helen Schott, a senior at Baltimore Polytechnic Institute, who says the event’s purpose reaches far beyond a one-time walk-out and hopes to educate young voters on environmental issues.

Climate Strike actions are taking place all over Maryland. You can find specifics of actions in Annapolis, Columbia, Frederick, Frostburg, Silver Spring and at the University of Maryland Baltimore here:

Students at Glenelg High School plan a walkout at 10:15. Information here:

In Baltimore, MICA’s Day of Action, from 11:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., includes climate events.
