OUR FUTURE, OUR RIGHT: MARCH WITH MINNESOTA YOUTH FOR A FOSSIL FREE FUTURE - OCTOBER 28, 2018
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.
Young people across the country are standing with them -- including here in Minnesota. Join youth leaders at the Minnesota Federal Courthouse on the eve of the trial, Sunday Oct 28, for a rally and march from there to the Capitol from 1-4pm.
