Texas Rally For The #TrialOfTheCentury

October 28 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Trial Of The Century

From St. Edward’s University Students For Sustainability –

The Students for Sustainability organization at St. Edward’s University is excited to be hosting Austin’s Rally for the #TrialOfTheCentury.

On October 29, 2018, 21 youth will confront the federal government at the #TrialoftheCentury in open court.

They are the #youthvgov plaintiffs in Juliana v. United States, and they allege that the U.S. government has knowingly violated their constitutional rights for over 50 years by contributing to climate change. They’re asking for a science-based National Climate Recovery Plan. This plan would end the reign of fossil fuels and require the United States government to do its part to stop dangerous climate change for young people and all future generations.

These brave youth need your help.

Join us from the rally at the Texas Capital to be a part of the #TrialoftheCentury and support these young climate warriors. Our freedom depends on a climate system that will sustain human life. Let’s show the government that it has a duty to prepare and implement a Climate Recovery Plan to protect our basic and most fundamental rights!
