Youth climate strikes are planned Friday in Santa Rosa and Sonoma.

The group Sunrise Sonoma County is urging youth to walk out of schools, workplaces and homes to participate in a Die-In For Life at noon on campuses across the county and at Old Courthouse Square in Santa Rosa.

A School Strike For The Climate is planned for 1:30 p.m. at the Sonoma Plaza, 453 First St. E. in Sonoma.

At 5 p.m., a candlelight march is scheduled from Julliard Park to Old Courthouse Square, where a vigil will be held for human and non-human victims of the devastating wildfires in the county and the global victims of climate-related disasters.

Youth activists, artists and community leaders in the Sunrise climate strike movement are calling for the end of dependence on fossil fuels and demanding a Green New Deal by federal legislators.

The Friday Climate Strike coincides with the gathering of world leaders at the United Nations' annual climate conference in New York City.
