Climate Lawsuit by 21 Youth Plaintiffs”

The Earth Care Committee of First Congregational Church is pleased to announce a public presentation on “Our Children’s Trust” www.OurChildrensTrust.org and the climate lawsuit www.ourchildrenstrust.org/us/federal-lawsuit/ against the Trump administration filed by 21 young Americans and climate scientist James Hansen. The landmark climate lawsuit seeks science-based Climate Recovery Plans, and is based on their constitutional rights and public trust.
The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco is expected to rule very soon on whether this lawsuit filed in 2015, with the support of Our Children’s Trust, can proceed to trial.
Co-founder of Our Children’s Trust Sharon Duggan, and Coreal Riday-White OCT Community Engagement Manger, will give us an update on the lawsuit and what we can do locally.

She has focused much of her legal career on the protection of natural resources, and particularly old growth redwoods, endangered salmon and protected species like the Northern Spotted Owl and the Marbled Murrelet. She has had the privilege of representing many community-based environmental groups
including the Environmental Protection Information Center (EPIC) in Northern California, the Center for Sierra Nevada Conservation, and Californians for Alternatives to Toxics, as well as the Sierra Club in major litigation efforts.
Coreal Riday-White, after law school, worked in San Francisco representing cities in connection with environmental claims. He joined OCT in 2015 and manages the YouCAN youth program and heads the OCT federal trail mobilization efforts and is point person for individual and organizational partnerships. One of which is the UCC 1000 Sermons campaign … Justice for #EachGeneration campaign.
Sharon and Coreal’s presentations will address the current lawsuit and what we can do to support the pre trial work and supporting our youth to have voice for their and future generations for clean air and protection of our environment. The event is free of charge and everyone is welcome: it is hosted by the Earth Care Committee of the First Congregational
