Since 2015, 21 young people from across the country have been suing the federal government for violating their constitutional rights to life, liberty, and property by knowingly contributing to climate change for over five decades.

Since the case was initially filed, the youth plaintiffs have been successful at winning every step of the way, despite efforts by both the U.S. government and the fossil fuel industry to shut it down.



June 4th at the hearing before the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in Portland, Oregon,  is a critical turning point in the case.

The hearing will decide to things:

  1. Whether or not the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals will send the case back to the District Court so that the plaintiffs can start trial.

  2. Whether or not to grant the plaintiffs’ recent motion for preliminary injunction, which would lead to a nationwide moratorium on new fossil fuel permitting and leasing on federal lands and waters until the appeal is over, essentially halting all creation of new fossil fuel infrastructure.

#iamjuliana AND YOU ARE TOO

On June 1st, the Saturday prior to the hearing, young people across the US will hold local press conferences to tell the world, in their own words, why Juliana V. US is so important to changing the future of our planet
