Tulsans to Participate in Global Climate Strike


On Friday people are planning to walk out of class, offices, and homes to draw attention to the ‘climate crisis.’ Oklahomans and Tulsans will participate in what is being called a global climate strike. Michael Koster with ‘Tulsa Talks Climate’ says young people are the driving force. The strike is related to the ‘Fridays for Future’ movement, started by a Swedish teenager.

Hundreds are expected to participate in Tulsa, and several thousand across the state of Oklahoma. More than 100 countries are expected to take part in the walkout. A rally will be held in downtown Tulsa at noon Friday.
