Event description

Description

Join us for an intimate gathering for our friends, allies and supporters. We will all come together at Busboys and Poets for a lunch the day before the historic People’s Climate Mobilization.

Come learn about Our Children’s Trust’s innovative legal campaign to secure the right to stable climate and healthy atmosphere – including the significance of Judge Ann Aiken’s finding that there exists a fundamental, constitutionally-protected “right to a climate system capable of sustaining human life.” The gathering will feature:

  • Breaking updates on #youthvgov federal lawsuit from Chief Legal Counsel Julia Olson

  • Stories from the inspiring youth plaintiffs

  • Opportunities to show your support for the Juliana v U.S. federal lawsuit and 21 brave youth plaintiffs who will soon face off against Trump and his Fossil Fuel industry allies in court.

  • Updates on Earth Guardians global grassroots leadership

  • Delicious organic lunch cooked on-site at the Bus Boys and Poets U St Location

Speakers include Julia Olson (Our Children’s Trust Director and lead attorney), Aiden Ferris (Earth Guardians crews director) Kelsey Juliana (lead plaintiff on #youthvgov lawsuit, RYSE council member) Xiuhtezcatl Martinez (Earth Guardians Youth Director and plaintiff, RYSE council member) and additional staff, youth leaders and #youthvgov plantiffs.

After the speakers, we’ll enjoy a leisurely vegetarian lunch and get a chance to meet one another and socialize.

If you’re able to join us, please RSVP here ASAP as space is limited.

Note: this event is invite-only. Please only RSVP if you recieved the link from an event organizer.
