72% of Americans agree: climate change is an emergency. Come hear climate movement leaders talk about what we need to do before it’s too late.
This roundtable features Our Children’s Trust, the organizers 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. They’ll be joined by Thanu Yakupitiyage of 350.org!
