Omaha Climate Strike
People gathered at the Omaha-Douglas Building at 1718 Farnam Street to protest against legislators they perceive are taking no action against climate change.
Students from Central High School gathered in the most significant numbers.
Adam Metzger of pop-band AJR spoke to the crowd and alluded his visit to the United Nations alongside climate change spokesperson Greta Thunberg.
Mark Vondrasek, a candidate for legislative district 9 of Nebraska, suggested students take the fall semester of 2020 to organize themselves and their peers for the upcoming elections.
