There’s good news in the landmark youth climate lawsuit, Juliana v. U.S. A three-judge panel of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco has granted Juliana v. US attorneys the opportunity to argue in support of the fundamental and constitutional right to a livable climate. Faced with a climate emergency, 21 youth plaintiffs will call on the Ninth Circuit to lift the temporary stay and allow the case to proceed to trial. Please show up in solidarity with the youth and stand for climate rights! You can also livestream the hearing.

Kelsey Juliana, 21-year-old named Plaintiff from Eugene, Oregon, said: “Every week, or even every day that our trial is delayed is time I spend further worrying about the stability of our climate system and the security of my future. I’m excited for the Ninth Circuit judges to hear from my lawyers, and to have our case in front of them. Another step forward, onward to climate and constitutional Justice!”
The youth are eager to explain in open court before the 9th Circuit judges why their case must go to trial under our nation’s laws and as a matter of urgency.
These 21 young Americans have won at every step of their lawsuit so far, and they need our help to do so again. Please make a donation today to cover the costs of bringing these brave #youthgov plaintiffs to court in San Francisco.
