Young Activists Protest in Washington

WASHINGTON, D.C.—Young activists took to the streets Washington, D.C., on Monday for the Our Generation, Our Choice day of action.

The demonstration is the first of many, and is the result of the work of various youth activists in the D.C. metro area. The activists, most of whom are millennials, seek to raise awareness and demand accountability from their elected officials on issues of race, climate change and immigration. 

A number of organizations endorsed the demonstration, including, the Chesapeake Climate Action Network and the Fossil Fuel Divestment Student Network.
