The Juliana plaintiffs and Greta Thunberg together in DC

Press Conference – Livestream – Facebook – JULIANA vs UNITED STATES – SEPTEMBER 18 – SIGN UP AND TUNE IN – WASHINGTON D.C. 


This month will be the dawn of a new era in the climate movement. With glaciers melting at unprecedented rates and fires burning across the Amazon, young people are going all out to fight for our future and our elders are rising in solidarity with us.

On Wednesday, September 18, my Juliana v. United States co-plaintiffs and I will come together with Swedish climate activist, Greta Thunberg, at a press conference in Washington D.C. We will call on world leaders to recognize the fierce urgency of climate change, and to put in place science-based climate recovery plans around the world. Tune in to the Facebook livestream of this historic union of major youth leaders.

Sign up for a reminder to tune in to the September 18 press conference featuring the Juliana plaintiffs and Greta Thunberg.

AND THEN – DON’T FORGET; 

On Friday, September 20, young people, workers, activists, politicians and many more will strike to demand immediate climate action in what will likely be the largest climate mobilization ever. We will strike to demand transformative action to address the climate crisis. Building on the recent surge of the youth climate movement, adults will join us to send a clear, intergenerational message to governments that they must act decisively in the face of climate chaos. 

Join my co-plaintiffs and me at strikes across the country, from New York City to Alaska, to show solidarity with the broader youth climate movement and demand our day in court.

Grateful for all you do to support the brave young people in this movement.

Thank you for rising with us,
Xiuhtezcatl Martinez
Juliana v. United States plaintiff and Earth Guardians Youth Director

IF YOU’RE A LEGISLATOR AND READY TO SHOW YOUR SUPPORT, GO HERE.

While we wait for the decision from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, we must call on Members of Congress to publicly support Juliana v. United States and the constitutional rights of young people to life, liberty, and property free from government endangerment. We have been calling on the judicial branch to help hold the executive branch of our federal government accountable for its role in causing the climate crisis, and we need the legislative branch to step up as well.

Let’s make this happen.

~ Vic Barrett, Juliana v. United States plaintiff

Remember to do all three – tweet and email and call

The United States government has known about the causes and dangers of climate change for more than half a century. Yet it continues to promote and protect the major driver of the climate crisis: our national fossil fuel energy system. These actions of the executive branch have endangered young Americans. This is unjust and unconstitutional. That’s why the 21 young plaintiffs in Juliana v. United States are suing the federal government. We need Congress to support them and their fundamental constitutional rights to life, liberty, and property free from government endangerment in its role in causing climate chaos.
