Rallying My Generation in the I Matter March

My name is Alec Loorz. Iʼm 16 years old, and I am a climate change activist. Iʼve spent my entire teenaged life traveling around our planet talking to my peers about global climate change. And now Iʼm planning an international event called the iMatter March, happening on May 8.

Climate change is the most urgent issue of our time. Our societyʼs addiction to fossil fuels is messing with the perfect balance of nature and threatening the survival of our generation. It needs to stop, and we will not sit idly by as our leaders make decisions that affect our future.

So on May 8, we will march. The youth will rise up in our communities and let the world know that climate change is not about money, itʼs not about power, itʼs not about convenience, it is about our survival. Itʼs about the future of this and every generation to come, and we are ready to do whatever it takes to change it.

There will be marches in cities all over the world, from New York City to New Dehli to Canton, Georgia to Mexico City. And we need you to march with us!

We are looking for march organizers in cities all across the world. You donʼt need to have any experience in organizing anything at all. All you need is passion, commitment, and desire to change the world.

Sign up at iMatterMarch.org to lead a march in your community.

We matter. This is our time.
