Today's Youths Take Action to Secure a Livable Future.
Juliana v. United States was brought by 21 young plaintiffs, and Earth Guardians, who argue that their constitutional and public trust rights are being violated by the government’s creation of climate danger. The case is one of many related legal actions brought by youth in several states and countries, all supported by Our Children’s Trust, seeking science-based action by governments to stabilize the climate system.
#youthvgov plaintiffs make their way into the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals! Their attorney is ready to argue that their lawsuit be allowed to proceed to trial against the Trump administration. #JulianavUS #riseup.......#climatechange #climaterights #climatejustice #riseup #youthrise #civilrights #speakout #resist #resistance

Win in the 9th Circuit Court.
On October 29, 2018, 21 young people suing the federal government for violating their constitutional right to a safe climate will finally have their day in court.
The date was decided at a conference in Eugene, Ore., between attorneys for both sides and Magistrate Judge Thomas M. Coffin. The case will be heard by United States District Court Judge Ann Aiken.
While President Trump continues to reject science, these young people are fighting for the future of the planet.
