Climate change is one of the most pressing human rights issue of our times. Our youngest generations understand that their futures are at stake.
Across the U.S., youth are taking legal action against all 50 states and the federal government for our leader's collective failure to protect the atmosphere for current and future generations. Their legal actions are based on our government's obligation to protect the resources we all share and depend upon for life -- our air and water. From the fires in the Rocky Mountains, to the droughts that ravaged the Midwest, to Hurricane Sandy, the effects of climate change are evident and urgent.
We are inspired daily in our work with these youth activists. We hope you will be equally inspired and share these stories of TRUST with your communities.
