Here is the email from TUSD to parents about today's global climate strike. TUSD promotes the Arizona Youth Climate Strike rally at El Presidio Park. The truth the Arizona Resistance movement is the organizer of this event. We asked AZ Youth Climate for an interview and a woman named Judith with an AZResistance.org email responded. This is from the AZResistance.org website:
Climate Strike: Tucson
September 20 @ 4:30 pm-6:30 pm
The Arizona Youth Climate Strike is coming to Tucson! If you live in the Tucson area please join us at El Presido Park next to the Tucson City Hall for a Climate Strike from 4:30 to 6:30 on September 20th.
The Climate Crisis is the most urgent issue our generation faces today. Tucson youth will be standing alongside the millions of other young people striking across the United States and across the world. We encourage Arizonans of all ages to join us as we demand that our elected officials take action to combat the Climate Crisis.
Please register through Action Network atTinyURL.com/tucsonstrikeso we can get an idea of how many people are coming out and send you updates before the strike.
Remember: Bring Water, Wear Sunscreen and Wear Green!

Good evening TUSD High School Families;
We want to make you aware of severalClimate Change Rally eventshappening tomorrow, Friday, 9/20.
High School students across the United States are being asked to support the Global Climate Strike movement, which is calling for immediate action to end climate change. As part of the movement we understand there is apotential 1:00 Walk out at all TUSD high schools to attend a peaceful walk up 6th street to Jacome Plaza or a Rally/ Talk-in at Tucson Magnet High School Auditorium.
Please know safety is a top priority so Tucson High has several teachers ready to facilitate the Talk-in discussion, as well as TUSD School Safety will be on site to help oversee activities.
In addition, there is a Tucson Climate rally hosted by Arizona Youth Climate Strike at downtown’s El Presidio Park, 160 W. Alameda St., from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. to demand that Tucson declare a climate emergency and create its own climate action plan.
We ask that you speak to your student about the walk out /rally and if they should participate.
