Youth v Gov

110 mins


Twenty-one young Americans take on the world’s most powerful government in a revolutionary lawsuit that claims that over six decades of presidential administrations have continued to actively abuse their most vulnerable citizens by willingly contributing to the climate crisis. The plaintiffs are not in search of monetary retribution, but a plan and commitment to stop climate change. In fighting for their constitutional rights to life, liberty and property, these young people, if successful, will not only make history, but change the trajectory and future of our planet. In what is considered “the greatest dereliction of civic responsibility in the history of the republic,” Youth v Gov offers the opportunity for heroism within the judicial system.
