Introductory meeting for Bay Area supporters of Our Children’s Trust

Saturday | February 24, 2018 | 3:00 pm — 4:30 pm

Berkeley Public Library, South Branch | 1901 Russell Street, Berkeley, CA 94703

Twenty-one youth from all over the U.S. are suing the U.S. government for climate justice. Their strong voices, and the hopefulness of the YouthvGov case, are an inspiration to youth and adults alike as they work to secure the right to a science-based stable climate and healthy atmosphere for all present and future generations.  In this meetup staff from Our Children’s Trust will provide an overview and update on the case. We’ll introduce ourselves and talk about how we can build on a Bay Area YouthvGov support network for local climate activists, teachers, and youth advocates. We’ll share ways of utilizing the YouthvGov case as a learning opportunity to engage and empower local youth. We’ll also brainstorm ways of supporting the twenty-one youth and Our Children’s Trust as the case proceeds to trial.   There will be time for announcements and we will share upcoming learning opportunities and actions. Refreshments will be provided. Please RSVP so that we know how many people will be attending.
