The young people of the United States are joining with other action groups in the
September 20th worldwide strike to call for immediate and strong action on
climate change. This coincides with the United Nations Climate Action Summit in
New York City. It is also only two weeks after our encounter with Hurricane
Dorian.

The Environmental Issues Group of the LWVPBC provides the following
information for LWVPBC members who want to be involved as individuals or
organize groups to attend. There are two nearby options for this action: City
Place, 700 Rosemary Avenue in West Palm Beach at 5 p.m.; and 10 a.m. at Fort
Lauderdale City Hall, 1700 Convention Center Drive, Fort Lauderdale.
There is also a 10 a.m. event at Miami Beach City Hall, 1700 Convention
Center Drive.
