Each of us can make a difference in the coming months (and years) by following the call to action by the youth in Our Children's Trust and the commitment to climate justice by many in the indigenous community.
VOTE for Climate Justice and Take a Friend to the Polls
The U.S.election on Tuesday stands at a crucial time where the future for ourselves, our children, and grandchildren are at risk. We must vote for leaders that will not only act as a counter-balance to those currently in power, but for leaders in the fight for climate justice. The election of Bolsonaro in Brazil highlighted the importance of elections worldwide.
It has been said that non-voters handed the 2016 election to the current administration and to climate-deniers. The good news is there are some great candidates out there, let us vote them into power.
The youth persevere and will have their day in court!
On Friday, November 2, the United States Supreme Court denied the Trump administration’s application for stay in the landmark constitutional climate lawsuit, Juliana v. United States. The lawsuit, brought by 21 young Americans and supported by Our Children’s Trust, is back on track for trial. Julia Olson, executive director and chief legal counsel of Our Children’s Trust and co-counsel for the youth plaintiffs said:
“The youth of our nation won an important decision today from the Supreme Court that shows even the most powerful government in the world must follow the rules and process of litigation in our democracy. We have asked the District Court for an immediate status conference to get Juliana v. U.S. back on track for trial in the next week.”.
