Louisiana Rally for the #TrialoftheCentury!

Louisiana Rally for the #TrialoftheCentury!

Hosted by: Our Children’s Trust

On October 29, 2018, 21 youth will confront the federal government at trial in open court.

They are the #youthvgov plaintiffs in Juliana v. United States, and they allege that the U.S. government has knowingly violated their constitutional rights for over 50 years by contributing to climate change. On October 29 they will march into court—with America standing behind them—to demand a science-based National Climate Recovery Plan. This plan would end the reign of fossil fuels and require the United States government to do its part to stop dangerous climate change for young people and all future generations.

To win their case, these brave youth need your help. We want the world to know that it’s not just these 21 young people demanding a Climate Recovery Plan, it’s the American people demanding a Climate Recovery Plan!

Join us from the rally at the federal courthouse in Louisiana to be a part of the #TrialoftheCentury and support these young climate warriors. Our freedom depends on a climate system that will sustain human life. Let's show the government that it has a duty to prepare and implement a Climate Recovery Plan to protect our basic and most fundamental rights!

For more information or to find the rally in your state, visit www.youthvgov.org/october29
