December 11 Oral Arguments & Rally in San Francisco

Background:

The Juliana v. US youth plaintiffs will be in San Francisco to appear before the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals on Monday, December 11 at 10:00 a.m. The three-judge panel will hear oral arguments from an attorney representing the youth and an attorney representing the federal government to determine whether the Trump administration and U.S. government defendants can evade trial.

There will be a rally from 10:00 – 11:30 a.m. outside the U.S. Courthouse 95 7th St. San Francisco during the hearing, with livestream of the arguments. When youth plaintiffs and their attorneys exit the courthouse, they will hold a press conference to debrief; some of the youth and their attorneys will speak. We are asking Bay Area supporters to begin gathering outside the courthouse at 8:00 a.m. to show support for the youth plaintiffs as they enter the courthouse.

I stand with #youthvgov because the U.S. government has ignored the rights of our nation’s youth for long enough. It only continues to promote the fossil fuel energy system that causes climate change. But the climate crisis is HERE. The voices of these youth, and their evidence, must be heard in time to save their futures.
