The Youth Lobby would like to thank everybody for their generous support of the first Youth Rally for the Planet. The day was a huge success. Over 700 students marched down State Street from the Vermont College of Fine Arts to the State House lawn to respectfully ask for greater action on climate change. We had amazing guest speakers, including Governor Peter Shumlin, Senator David Zuckerman, Representative Kesha Ram, and 350VT representative Austin Davis. Students were able to talk to their local representatives about their concerns and learn more about the steps Vermont is taking to address climate change.
We have already begun the planning for next year’s rally and hope we can count on your continued support!.
