This spring we’re taking over commencements everywhere to demand a zero emissions future.

 

 THE SPEECH

STARTING IN MAY, HUNDREDS OF VALEDICTORIANS AND SALUTATORIANS WILL DELIVER THE SAME MESSAGE IN THEIR COMMENCEMENT SPEECHES:

 

Today, we celebrate our achievements from the last 4 years. But I want to focus on what we need to achieve in the next 11.

That’s how long climate scientists have given us; 11 years to avoid catastrophic climate change. It’s already damaging our homes, our health, our safety and our happiness. We won’t let it take our futures too.

Our diplomas may say Class of 2019, but marked in history, we are the Class of Zero.

Zero emissions.

Zero excuses.

Zero time to waste.

Across the country, our class stands 7.5 million strong.

And in unity, we’re giving 2020 political candidates a choice:

Have a plan to get to zero emissions, or get zero of our votes.

Together, we have the power to solve the climate crisis.

Every student. Every parent. Every teacher. Every leader.

The future is in our hands.
