The ENOUGH! Campaign launches a virtual livestream on Tuesday, September 22 to benefit national voter registration day. This youth-led event will feature diverse voices from various justice movements including Leah Thomas of Intersectional Environmentalist, Jamie Margolin of Zero Hour and Thandiwe Abdullah of The Black Lives Matter Youth Vanguard. 

The ENOUGH! campaign is organized by an intergenerational coalition of partners convened by the Alliance for Climate Education (ACE) that currently includes: The CLEO Institute, Our Climate, Young Evangelicals for Climate Action (YECA), Climate Generation, National Children’s Campaign, Schools for Climate Action and Power Shift Network.

“In 2020, young people have had ENOUGH!. Enough denial. Enough wildfires. Enough extreme storms and floods. Enough theft of our future. We need a plan to address the climate crisis at the speed and scale that science and justice requires—enough is enough!. This election season, youth voices will be enough to take back our future.”
