Climate Strike 2019 @ AU
A nationwide call to action prompted a gathering of environmentalists from all walks of life in our very own Sioux Falls. Folks congregated on the “Green” at the Augustana University campus to enact a strike in response to the climate crisis. Those who attended laid blankets on the grass or stood in groups among the tables of community efforts sign-up sheets and vegan cupcakes.
Many powerful speakers stood in front of the crowd and shared their fears for our Earth and the steps they believed could save us moving forward. The speakers shared shocking statistics, heartfelt poetry, and personal experiences. It was obvious by the number of attendees, that Sioux Falls cares deeply about the issues of climate change and is ready to show up in response.
