YOUTH v GOV is the story of America’s youth taking on the world’s most powerful government. In 2015, 21 young plaintiffs, ages 8 to 19, filed suit against the U.S. government asserting a willful violation of their constitutional rights. YOUTH v GOV follows this turbulent legal battle as the government and fossil fuel industry take extraordinary measures to get the case dismissed. Legal experts call this case the “most important lawsuit on the planet," but it's more than just a legal battle.
YOUTH v GOV is the story of empowered youth finding their voices and fighting to protect not just their rights, but our collective future. The heart of this film lies in the young plaintiffs’ personal stories as they find their footing as leaders and come to know their power as citizens in our democracy.
