Date: Sunday, Oct. 28
Time: 1:00-4:00 p.m.
Join youth from across Minnesota at the Minnesota Federal Courthouse on the eve of the #youthvgov trial, Sunday Oct 28, for a rally and march from there to the Capitol from 1-4pm.
On October 29, twenty-one young plaintiffs are bringing the U.S. federal government to court (known as #youthvgov), stating that: “Our government has known about the dangers of climate change for more than fifty years. Despite that knowledge, the United States has continued to pursue reckless and dangerous fossil fuel development, harming the health of our communities and threatening our futures. We want a federal Climate Recovery Plan that is in line with both the best available science and climate justice.”
Show your support and join the march! We invite people of all ages to stand with the young leaders of the Youth Climate Interveners, Minnesota Can’t Wait, iMatter, the Sunrise Movement, YEA! MN, Minnesota Interfaith Power and Light, and more. We are united in our belief that Minnesota needs to do everything in its power to stop fossil fuels now and further a climate justice economy.
