FRIDAYS FOR FUTURE NYC
WHO WE ARE
We believe that listening to and following the best available science should be at the heart of our government’s policies and actions. However, many of our current elected officials choose to ignore the scientific consensus on climate change and deny its severity. Therefore, we must take action to ensure that our government listens to the science and fights to protect our futures.
The New York City chapter of Fridays for Future was started by youth activists Spencer Berg and Alexandria Villasenor in 2019 and has gone on to host strikes of more than 300,000 people, calling on politicians, coroporations, and government bodies to make meaningful change on the local, state, and national levels.
