Last Friday, you may have noticed that some people were not in class that day. This could be for a number of reasons, but one major reason was the Global Youth Climate Strike. As some of you may know, an email was sent out mostly to freshmen here at North Providence High School last Tuesday giving details on the event. This email was sent out by Sarah Coutu, a freshman at our school. The email gave details about when the strike would be, where, and what it was for. Although some students did not take the matter as maturely as planned, Sarah was still determined to go to the strike.

The Global Youth Climate Strike took place at 11:00 A.M. on Friday, March 15th at the Rhode Island State House. It was organized by a group called Sunrise Rhode Island, which is a youth-led movement working to stop climate change. The goal of this event is to get lawmakers and politicians to create legislation that would work to stop the causes of man-made climate change. One of these wishes, is to stop the production of green house gases. They did this by protesting in front of the RI state house in order to show politicians that the young people of today care about the future of our planet.
