What we're about
This is a group for the Foley Square Solidarity Rally for the #TrialoftheCentury! Anyone may join us. New York stands to lose homes and whole neighborhoods to the flooding and disasters of climate change. By supporting the youth of #YouthvGov we are going to let our local government know we are not going to take this sitting down!
Join us for one out of 50-state solidarity rallies at Thurgood Marshall Courthouse, Foley Square, 40 Centre Street, NYC from 12-2pm 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!
On October 29, 2018, 21 youth will confront the federal government at the #TrialoftheCentury in open court on behalf of all current youth and future generations.
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. They're asking for 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.
These brave youth need your help!
