Join the Warehouse Workers For Justice & Sunrise Movement Chicago for a joint action in support of the Amazon Tech Workers and the Global Climate Strike. The climate strike called by Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg has spread throughout the world and students all over Chicagoland will be walking out demanding immediate action on climate change.

These students have now been joined by over a 1000 Amazon Tech Workers nationally who will be walking off their jobs to demand Amazon and CEO Jeff Bezos take real action to confront the climate change crisis. With Amazon’s rapidly growing fleet of fossil fuel powered airplanes, boats, trains, semi-truck and delivery vehicles, the retailer is a major contributor to climate change. In fact, transportation is now the largest contributor to climate change in Illinois and nationally. Come join us to support workers and students who will be demanding Amazon take immediate action to combat climate change

We will be meeting at the downtown Amazon corporate offices on September 20th, 930am at 227 W Monroe (At&T Center) with a press conference at 10am and walk off at 1025am (Labor, Environmental Justice and Student Feeder March) to main event at Columbus and Roosevelt to join main student rally.
