“Don’t be intimidated by what you think you can’t do. Do what you can. Learn about the issue. It’s important to focus on making better choices and decisions, not on finding the ‘right’ solution or answer.”

Kallan Benson is the national coordinator for Fridays For Future USA and co-organizer of the Outreach Working Group for Fridays for Future International. In less than one year, her efforts have built a broad collaborative movement, with nearly 140 weekly strike communities across the country. She co-directs a collaborative art activism initiative, Parachutes for the Planet, which invites participants to express their concerns about the future through community art. Her activism helped win a state-wide fracking ban in Maryland and bills to reduce fossil fuel dependence in Maryland and the District of Columbia.
