Cambridge Friends School Students Join Worldwide Protest Against Climate Change

On Friday, March 15, Cambridge Friends School middle school students participated in a walk-out to push for action on climate change. Students were accompanied by middle school teachers Becca, Jose, and substitute teacher Mike, as well as registrar Nick, Head of Middle School and Director of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Jack, and parents Deb and Natasha. They marched from CFS to the State House, where they joined the crowds in pushing for legislation for action on climate change. As Becca writes, “It was a beautiful day on Friday. We made our way to the State House and joined the rally for about 45 minutes with our signs. The youth organization was amazing, and they were asking the rally to intensify the impact by lobbying representatives inside the State House.”
The students will begin a mini-lesson on lobbying in each science class and discuss different opportunities for other strikes – “this time, student-led and organized by our own students.” Becca writes, “As we move into spring, I will be helping to facilitate these groups and connections, as I believe that this is integral to the students' futures and to their learning experiences here at CFS.”
Huge thanks to all involved for making your voices heard on behalf of our planet! For more information on the Climate Change march, please click here.
