The game-changing U.S. federal lawsuit supported by Our Children’s Trust.

We are 21 young people going to trial against President Trump and the federal government for perpetrating climate chaos.

Our government has known about the dangers of climate change for more than fifty years. Despite that knowledge, the United States has continued to pursue reckless and dangerous fossil fuel development, harming the health of our communities and threatening our futures.

We decided to sue the President and federal government, because we believe that youth and future generations have the right to climate justice.

We’re suing for a federal climate recovery plan in line with both science and justice. No new pipelines. No more fracking. Healthier, safer communities for all of us.

On February 5, 2018, we go to trial. We have a once-in-a-lifetime chance to prove our constitutional right to a climate system capable of sustaining human life.

We need to stand together for our constitutional rights. Will you join us?
