58c1509f10c34da8a10d5dd0fcfd8d81-huge-alThe constitutional climate lawsuit, Juliana v. United States, will be heard on June 4 before the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in Portland, Oregon. The lawsuit is brought by the organization Our Children’s Trust, which is a friend of CCL’s. (We’ve even had their executive director speak at our annual conference.)

Our Children’s Trust would like people to tune in and watch the oral argument before the Ninth Circuit next week. They said, “We need to protect the constitutional rights of young people. We need the U.S. government to know that we are watching as it tries to deny the Juliana plaintiffs their right to a stable climate in court. We need #AllEyesOnJuliana."

Here are a few resources from Our Children’s Trust that you can use to watch the oral arguments and talk about it on social media:
