The Massachusetts Teachers Association supports the Youth Climate Strike planned for Friday, March 15.
“Our students are demonstrating leadership and passion when it comes to tackling the issue of climate change, and they deserve our full support,” said Fall River teacher Kurt Ostrow, who recently introduced a new business item supporting the climate strike that the MTA Board of Directors passed unanimously. “We cannot teach on a dead planet.”
Youth Climate Strike actions are planned worldwide. In Massachusetts, they are taking place in several communities, including Boston, Amherst, Barnstable, and Great Barrington.
