This spring we’re taking over commencements everywhere to demand a zero emissions future.
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 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.
JOIN THE CLASS OF 0000
Not speaking? No problem. There are lots of ways to join the Class of 0000 and fight for a zero emissions future:
TAKE THE 0000 PLEDGE
Take a photo with your zero over your heart and post it to social media with a pledge to vote for a zero emissions future. Add #ClassOf0000.
POST AND TAG YOUR REP
Post a high school pic of your state or local rep asking what they would have done if they were graduating into this climate crisis.
REGISTER TO VOTE
The most important thing you can do to support the Class of 0000 is vote for candidates who have a plan to get to zero emissions.
