MYCJ partnered with Maine Youth Climate Strikes (the Maine branch of US Youth Climate Strikes) and 350 Maine to organize youth led strikes throughout the state of Maine on September 20th, part of a week of global climate action.
MYCJ supported strikes took place in Bangor, Bar Harbor, Farmington, Norway, and Portland, where thousands of youth and adult allies walked out of their schools, workplaces, and homes to demand an end to business as usual.
