As young people and those wanting to support them across the country prepare to rally Friday for the Global Climate Strike, a dozen youth activists including a prominent movement leader from Boulder came together Wednesday on the step of the U.S. Supreme Court to underscore the time to act on the issue is now.

The group included seven young plaintiffs in the landmark Juliana versus United States of America, a case filed by 21 youth plaintiffs at U.S. District Court in Oregon, claiming the government violated young people’s rights by encouraging and allowing activities that harmed their right to life and liberty, and sought for the government to adopt methods for reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
