|From Our Children’s Trust:
Dear Friends, The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit has ruled unanimously to allow our 21 youth plaintiffs’ landmark climate recovery lawsuit to proceed to trial. This decision rejects the Trump administration’s efforts to deny these 21 youth a trial on the fundamental right to a climate system capable of sustaining human life. Read the 9th Circuit Court’s decision here and our press release here.

With this victory, Juliana v. U.S. is now back on track for what many are calling the “trial of the century.” At trial, the youth plaintiffs will seek systemic, science-based climate recovery action by our federal government. This lawsuit will counter the dangerous policies of our climate change-denying president before it’s too late.
We fully expect the Trump administration to do everything within its power to delay the ultimate victory we anticipate at trial for these youth, future generations, and for our planet. So, we have no choice but to do everything within our power to be sure that we win this case. We need your support now to do just that. And we have a generous matching challenge that will double the impact of your contribution in any amount up to $25,000!
Large and small donations will be necessary to fund this trial and our parallel work in states and around the globe. You can make an important tax-deductible gift right now online, or send your donation by check to the address below.
On behalf of your children and grandchildren, your nieces and nephews, and all children everywhere, we thank you for your support as we all celebrate another victory for youth in their struggle for climate justice.
With gratitude and fortitude,
The Team at Our Children’s Trust
