Juliana v United States trial opening: Justice for #EachGeneration
Start: Monday, October 29, 2018•11:30 AM
End: Monday, October 29, 2018• 1:00 PM
On behalf of the brave 21 youth plaintiffs in Juliana v. United States, thank you for all of your support. It’s been a long journey and we are nearing a moment that is not to be missed. The Saturday before last, many of you rose for climate, jobs, and justice in your community. Now is the time to stand up and join the movement behind the #TrialoftheCentury. Juliana v. U.S. is going to trial! This lawsuit could change everything.
On October 29, 2018, these 21 young people will confront the federal government in open court. 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.
But to win their case, the plaintiffs need your help. People in every state are standing up to organize a rally in support of the Juliana plaintiffs! These rallies will be held on October 29 at federal courthouses across the country.
This is the organizing page for the rally at the Moakley Federal Courthouse in Boston, MA. Use the form in the upper right of this page to sign up.
Organized by First Parish Needham, Unitarian Universalist, and its Green Congregation Committee, this Meeting of Witness will stand in solidarity with the #YouthVGov using the peaceful means of argument in court to demand the National Climate Recovery Plan.
The Meeting will begin at 11:30 a.m. sharp, and conclude at 1 p.m. Please try to use public transportation to arrive. The Silver Line comes from South Station, and the Orange Line comes from North Station.
Use the form in the upper right of this page to sign up. Thanks!
