Global Climate ShoeStrike event set for Sept. 25

A Global Climate ShoeStrike event will take place Friday, Sept. 25, from 10 a.m. – 12 p.m., at Moonlight Beach in Encinitas. This protest action, inspired by Greta Thunberg’s School Strike movement, started in Sweden and has spread across the globe. A shoe strike allows people to stand for climate action without being in their shoes — a safe way to protest during the pandemic. Immediately following this event will be a shoe swap from 12 - 2 p.m., with masks and social distancing mandatory.
