BOISE — Dozens of students from area schools walked out of class Friday afternoon for a youth rally, part of the Global Climate Strike, to demand that leaders at all levels take action to stop catastrophic climate change.

Youth speakers at the event spoke of their fears that climate change is impacting and will impact communities locally and globally, but also showed resolve in their belief that individuals can take action on their own, and put pressure on people in power to effect change.
