Students across the Portland metro plan to walk out of school on Friday to demand action in the fight against climate change.
Many of those planning to join in the protest say they’re willing to do anything to help preserve the Earth. Thousands of Portland-area kids joined in a similar climate strike in March.
Students at the Cottonwood School of Civics and Science were preparing for Friday’s march by making signs bearing messages for lawmakers.
