Climate emergency: Stop silencing youth!

To US President Biden:

As global citizens, we urgently call on you to let the Juliana v. United States case proceed to trial without any further delays or obstructions from the US Department of Justice. You’ve said that you support youth and want to address the climate crisis, but your government is abusing emergency powers in an unprecedented attempt to rip this case out of the normal legal process. These 21 brave youth plaintiffs deserve to have their stories heard in front of a trial judge. Let them go to court!

Climate emergency: Stop silencing youth!
My name is Levi, and my family had to flee our island home after floods almost destroyed it.

But it’s not the storm that displaced us -- not really. It’s my own government that is spending millions on planet-killing oil and gas instead of protecting children like me.

So we’re fighting back -- and suing the United States. If we win, the US could be forced to phase out fossil fuels, the biggest threat to life on Earth.

They call it the lawsuit of the century, but the US Justice Department is trying everything to kill it. They’re even trying to block us from telling our stories in court!

President Biden is the only person who can save our case, but insiders tell us that he’s feeling no pressure to act. They think they can silence us and the world won’t care!

I will not let them silence me. So I’m getting louder! In weeks, I am marching to the White House to raise the pressure and demand my day in court. Will you stand up with me?
