Northeast Iowa Peace and Justice Center (NEIPJC) and Humble Hands Harvest invite everyone to a Climate Strike Friday, Sept. 20, from 6 to 8:30 p.m., at Humble Hands Harvest, 2741 Hidden Falls Road, Decorah, hosted by Hannah Breckbill and Emily Fagan.

This climate strike is being held in tandem with thousands happening across the world Sept. 20 – but with a Northeast Iowa twist.

“Here in the Driftless, we know we don't need to wait around for national political action on climate; we have fertile soil, a biodiverse ecosystem and connected, resilient communities,” an organizer said. “While we do need those in political power to make massive changes to our political and economic structures, we also know that we have power in our own lives and ways of relating to life on this planet. So: let's have a potluck, on a regenerative farm, and engage in conversation about local resilience to climate chaos.”

Instructions
1. Carpool to the farm.
2. Bring potluck food to share.
3. To have either a pastured pork bratwurst or a grass-fed lamb burger cooked for you, RSVP to humblehandsharvest@gmail.com

Dinner is planned for around 6:30 p.m. There will be some programming and structured, facilitated time as well. Attendees are asked to dress for the weather, as the farm doesn't really have indoor space.

About the Strike
On Sept. 20, young people and adults will strike to demand transformative action be taken to address the climate crisis.

Building on a historic surge of student protests and strikes for climate action, the Sept. 20 strike comes ahead of the United Nations Summit on Climate Change three days later, when world leaders will convene in New York with the goal of deepening climate ambition.

The Youth Climate Strike Coalition is steering the national campaign, with the active support, participation and collaboration from an Adult Climate Strike Coalition, which includes leading national progressive organizations such as 350.org, Greenpeace, SEIU and March On. Youth and adults, institutional and grassroots organizations, climate-focused and social justice groups, are coming together as a unified front to demand the change needed to protect the future. The
Climate Strike Coalition is planning large-scale events with partners and local activists across the country, with an emphasis on highlighting the work of frontline communities and connecting the climate movement to civic engagement.
