Young people disrupt Kansas City’s national Superbowl parade to hype largest Earth Day Strike in history
Kansas City, MO -- Around 1 million people, or roughly half the population of the Kansas City Metro area, were greeted with a giant banner reminding them to “Strike for a Livable Future” this coming Earth Day. The crowd gathered for a victory parade and rally for the Kansas City Chiefs, who won the Superbowl for the first time in 50 years last Sunday. Young people with Sunrise Movement Kansas City dropped the banner at a parking garage on Grand Avenue along the parade route, drawing the crowd’s attention to mobilizing for action on the climate crisis. The young people also canvassed and passed out flyers, reminding attendees they’ll need a crowd of a similar size on Earth Day if they want to win action on the climate crisis from their representatives.
“The Kansas City Chiefs have won our city a great victory for the first time in 50 years and this gigantic crowd has plenty to celebrate,” said Lily Cosgrove, a 22 year-old music major at The University of Missouri-Kansas City. “ Today, we’ve proven we can take to the streets. Let’s turn out again on April 22nd to win a Green New Deal. Let’s not just win the Superbowl, let’s win a livable future. We’ll see you on Earth Day, Kansas City.”
April 22nd, 2020 marks the 50th Earth Day since it was first observed in 1970 and kicked off a wave of environmental legislation. Young people around the world are ensuring this year’s celebration will be the largest climate strike in history. Like previous strikes in September and December, young people will walk out of their classrooms and workplaces to demand world leaders stand up to fossil fuel billionaires and take action on the greatest crisis of our time.
Kansas City’s Earth Day climate strike is being planned by Sunrise Movement KC in coalition with a number of other groups. More details will be announced soon.
