Kelsey and her Americans Who Tell The Truth portrait by Robert Shetterly, which was unveiled on June 4, 2018 at the 4th annual Samantha Smith Challenge at Thomas College in Walterville, Maine.“Government actions knowingly and willingly created the climate crisis. From this crisis young and future generations face increasing dangers. As courageous, creative change-makers we have the opportunity and moral authority to change the social, political and economic structures that cause injustice and climate chaos. Youth are standing up for our fundamental right to inherit a stable and survivable planet. We have everything to gain from taking action and everything to lose from not.”
A Corvallis, Oregon mural “Walking Lightly in Time” was commissioned by the Corvallis chapter of Youth Climate Action Now - You Can Corvallis. “Humans are sort of walking with fellow species,” mural artist Esteban Camacho Steffensen said of the piece. “Three youths are leaving a light footprint on a path.” The Roman numeral date included is October 29, 2018 - the first day of trial for Juliana v. US!
