In one month, young people across the country will make history, and you can join them.
On June 4th, thousands will gather in Portland, Oregon to support the 21 Juliana v. United States youth plaintiffs suing the federal government for causing climate change. Their case will be heard before a panel of Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals judges to determine the fate of the lawsuit.
This hearing represents a crucial point in the case. Not only will it decide whether the case will finally go to trial, it will also decide whether or not to cease creation of new federally-approved U.S. fossil fuel infrastructure in the meantime.
Future Coalition has joined forces with Our Children’s Trust, the organization behind Juliana, to bring attention to the case and send a clear message to those in power that we will not stand by as our constitutional right to a stable climate and a liveable future is being violated.
Join us on June 1st, the Saturday prior to the hearing, as young people across the nation hold local press conferences in their communities to show our solidarity with the plaintiffs, and make clear that we will not just sit around and watch the world be destroyed around us.

To sign up to organize a press conference for #IAmJuliana on June 1st
This press conference will be a fantastic opportunity to learn and build on press skills such as pitching to reporters, building for the event, and running a press event. All hosts will be provided with toolkits, trainings, and a nation-wide network of support – so no prior experience necessary!
We will be sending out more details on how to organize a successful press conference in the coming days. In the meantime, register your press conference, and let us know if you have any questions or ideas!
Can’t wait to make history with all of you!
In solidarity,
Katie Eder, Future Coalition
