From youth leaders with the YEA! Network:

Education is essential in the climate justice movement, and we believe that climate justice education is a topic that belongs in schools. YEA! Network’s Climate Justice Education Bill (HF 550/SF 666) requires climate justice instruction in district and charter schools and throughout all subject areas for students in grades 1-12. The resources will include:

  • Information on the history and current causes of climate change and the disproportionate effects on marginalized communities
  • Acknowledging that systemic change is required to create climate change solutions
  • Learning the impact of our personal climate stories
  • Information on climate justice solutions
  • Career fields in the area of climate justice

We ask for your help in supporting this bill by signing on as an organization, group, or partner! You can learn more by watching the recording of our press conference.
