Julia Olson will discuss constitutional climate lawsuits, focusing on Juliana v. United States, and the important intersection of science and constitutional law. This landmark case was filed in 2015 by twenty-one youth against the U.S. government for its affirmative actions that cause and contribute to the climate crisis and violate the youngest generation’s constitutional rights to life, liberty, and property. The youth plaintiffs seek a declaration of their constitutional rights and a national, comprehensive, science-based, and just climate recovery plan. Julia will be joined by a plaintiff and they will discuss next steps as they head to the U.S. Supreme Court.
Speaker: Julia Olson, Our Children's Trust
