We're thrilled that #YouthvGov campiagn is coming to New York City!
The evening of January 31st Our Children's Trust will host a roundtable discussion with leaders from the climate movement to talk about how best to address the emergency climate situation.
Come out for an informative evening with the people behind Juliana v. United States, the youth constitutional climate lawsuit against the federal government. You'll learn about the background of the case from Chief Legal Counsel Julia Olson, and hear from some of the 21 youth plaintiffs about why they're leading this historic push for a national Climate Recovery Plan.
This event will be hosted in partnership with a number of local and national environmental groups to highlight the potential for collaboration between litigation and legislation in the climate movement. Partners in NYC include the New York Society for Ethical Culture and 350 NYC.
