Green Schools Strike

April 22nd, 2022

We are calling Chicago-area environmentalists to join us this Earth Day. The CCYC is hosting a strike in support of the Green Schools Campaign, which is pushing for CPS to reevaluate the state of buildings for the health of students, utilize new methods of green-energy, generate more green jobs, and support climate education across Chicago. Click to RSVP on the google form. We will meet in front of Buckingham Fountain at 2:30pm and march to Federal Plaza for a rally at 4:30.

Our team is in need of strike representatives from local Chicago-area high schools. If you would like to specialize in recruiting students from your school, please email

Please reach out with any questions below!
