January 2023 Climate Café - Screening 2RSVP
Grab some popcorn and join us for the celebrated documentary YOUTH v GOV, which details the journey of 21 American youth plaintiffs as they bring suit against the U.S. government for failing to act on climate change.
About the Film:
YOUTH v GOV is the story of the Juliana v. The United States of America constitutional lawsuit and the 21 American youth, ages 14 to 25, who are taking on the world’s most powerful government. Since 2015, the legal non-profit Our Children’s Trust has been representing these youth in their landmark case against the U.S. government for violating their constitutional rights to life, liberty, personal safety, and property through their willful actions in creating the climate crisis they will inherit.
As leaders in the youth climate movement, the twenty-one plaintiffs of Juliana v. The United States of America represent the diversity of American youth impacted by the climate crisis. They hail from 10 states: Florida, Alaska, Hawaii, Colorado, Oregon, Washington, Pennsylvania, Arizona, Louisiana, and New York. These film characters encompass cultural, economic, and geographic diversity, and many come from marginalized communities, serving as beacons of hope for those who do not have a platform to share their own stories. They are African-American, Indigenous, white, bi-racial, and LGBTQ. Their diversity speaks not only to the impacts of climate change but to the inclusion required if we build a better and more just future together. These young people are activists, students, artists, musicians, and farmers; their stories are universal.
