(CNN)People in cities across the US are expected to take part in strikes on Black Friday to call attention to the global climate crisis.
Climate strikes are also scheduled to take place around the world on Friday.
The protests are part of Fridays for Future, a youth-driven movement that started after teenage Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg skipped school and staged sit-ins on Fridays outside the Swedish Parliament. Supporters hope to build off of the momentum of the Fridays for Future global climate strikes that took place in September.
“In September, 7.5 million people around the world took to the streets. Tomorrow we’re doing it again. Everyone’s needed. Everyone’s welcome,” Thunberg posted on social media.
