In 2015, 21 young people sued the US Government to demand action on climate change in a case called Juliana v. U.S.

Now, they need our help.

Zero Hour, a youth-led climate justice organization, is launching a nationwide drive to get thousands of young people to add their names to a Young People's Brief in Support of the Juliana Plaintiffs. This is a real legal brief that Zero Hour will file with the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, calling upon the court to allow the voices of the Juliana Plaintiffs to be heard. The brief will make the following points:

  1. The Government is required by our Constitution to protect the rights of young people and children, including their fundamental rights to life and liberty.
  2. The Government is also required by law to protect and preserve the Public Trust, which includes the atmosphere, land and waters we rely on for life.
  3. By permitting and authorizing the emission of greenhouse gasses that it knows to be the cause of climate change, the government is violating its duty and our Constitutional rights.
  4. Only a trial can establish these facts and end the Government’s ongoing violation of our rights.Read the brief

Climate change threatens every young person. we need every young person to stand with us. We need you.

UPDATE: Our Young People’s Brief was filed with the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals on March 1, 2019, with over 36,000 names! But it’s not too late to add yours to our effort! We expect to take this brief and this campaign all the way to the Supreme Court – so please sign on today to be a part of it!
