LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) -- People are taking a stand for Climate change not just globally, but also here in Greater Lafayette.

Protesters stood outside of Lafayette's City Hall today in a climate strike.

The strike comes ahead of the United Nations Summit in New York on Monday. World leaders will talk about how to fix the problem of climate change.

Polly Barks was one of the organizers of today's protest. She says tackling climate change has to start on a local level.

“Taking it on on a local level is much more accessible.” Barks said. “It's much easier to set targets that we can realistically achieve rather than doing it nationally.”

The Global Climate Strike will run until September 27th. For more information on what role you can play in your homes and community, visit the Global Climate Strike website.
