Youth Climate Change Activists Marched on Washington, D.C.

The Youth Climate March began in a drizzle, with a forecast of steady, unrelenting rain on the way. The forecast didn’t disappoint, but the young activists who took the streets didn’t either.

Hundreds of young people from across the nation gathered on the national mall in Washington, D.C. on Saturday, July 21, for the protest planned by the environmental youth group Zero Hour.

The march was the last in a three-day string of events in Washington, D.C. organized by the youth and POC led group, including a lobby day and a Youth Climate Art Festival.
