AFS Students Join Strike for Climate Change

Friday, December 6, approximately a hundred of our Middle and Upper School students headed into Center City, Philadelphia for a strike to initiate change for the climate. Students at the rally spoke out against issues that are part of a Philadelphia-specific list of “Green New Deal” demands by Sunrise Philly, the organizer of the local march. Middle School Assistant Director Mark Smith and Middle School Science Teacher Mike McGlinn chaperoned Middle School students and the Upper School’s Environmental Action and Justice Club organized the involvement of their classmates in the strike.

Gabby Warner ’22, one of the students at the rally, was quoted in this KYW Newsradio story.
