August 22, 2019 (San Diego) – On Friday, September 20th, events in multiple San Diego locations are planned as part of the Global Climate Walkout from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. including San Diego State University.

“Students will walk out of their schools and adults will walk out of their workplaces to join in demanding bold climate action, and kicking off a global week of climate action,” says organizer Ky Ngo Dennis. “A massive show of resistance is needed to move our political leaders to treat the climate crisis with the seriousness it deserves.”


Millions of youth across 150 countries have been leading #FridaysforFuture school strikes to demand a sustainable, livable future for their generation. Now, youth are calling on the rest of us to stand with them in a worldwide climate strike, Dennis adds.


You can pledge to join the event at one of multiple walkout locations at universities, schools and businesses in San Diego. “On September 20 we will wake up San Diego and shake up the world,” says Dennis.


Events will take place in multiple locations in San Diego, including Hepner Hall at SDSU. You can visit for updated location information and to RSVP for an event locally, or visit
