For the last three years, 21 brave youth plaintiffs have been suing the federal government for its failure to take action on climate change. On Monday, October 29th, after years of shuffling and delay, the case goes to trial. All around the country, groups are gathering in solidarity at the federal courthouses to show our support for the brave work of these youth activists.
Please, join us on Monday, October 29, from 11:30-1pm. Wear your t-shirt. Bring a sign that says that you understand that climate can't wait, a picture of the children in your life, or a picture of one of the plaintiffs. The hashtag for this event is #YouthVGov.
From the organizers:
"They will demand a science-based National Climate Recovery Plan––a plan that would end the reign of fossil fuels and lead to swift decarbonization."
