About 50 Yellow Springs High School students walked out of class late Friday afternoon to join in the worldwide Climate Strike, a series of youth-led rallies in advance of the UN Climate Action Summit on Monday, Sept. 23. Local students, some hoisting hand-made signs, marched onto the front lawn with chants of “What do we want? Climate justice! When do we want it? Now!” and “Whose future? Our future!” Organized by seniors Chanel Phillips, Romel Phillips and Evelyn Potter, pictured at the far left, the local protest will continue on upcoming Fridays after school, giving all students a chance to participate. Other students pictured include, from the fourth on the left, Sophia Gisslen, Joe Freeman, Saelah Gisslen, Greenlee Cordell, Daphne Trillana and Eliza Minde-Berman. (Photo by Audrey Hackett)
