AL Youth Climate Strike

CW/ Joe Will Field

Two UA Early College teens teamed up to organize the AL Youth Climate Strike, a rally to protest the political issues surrounding climate change. Tuscaloosa homeschooler Isabel Hope, 16, and Madison high schooler Love Lundy, 17, hosted the strike that took place March 15 on the steps of the Alabama Capitol Building in Montgomery.

Around 60 people from across the state joined in on the strike, complete with posters, chants and demands for change on the state and national legislative levels. The event was a branch of an international organized campaign, promoted by The Action Network.
