Climate Strike D.C.

Thousands of protesters, many of whom skipped school and work, marched to the U.S. Capitol Friday, Oct. 20, 2019, to protest government inaction on climate change as part of D.C.’s Youth Climate Strike. I shot photos on one of our office’s DSLRs and shot and produced a video package. Click on the photos for caption information.

Read the story here by my colleagues Wissam Melhem and James Carr.
