Youth Delivers 62,000 Care2 Petition Signatures in Support of Climate Lawsuit to White House Urging Obama to “Leave a Legacy of Truth”

Our Children's Trust

NEW YORK - Today, Victoria Barrett, 17, will send more than 62,000 Care2 petition signatures in support of her climate lawsuit to the White House. Victoria is one of 21 young people suing President Obama, and several federal agencies, for the government’s actions that have caused carbon pollution, climate destabilization, for the resulting violations of the youths’ constitutional rights, and to secure immediate science-based climate recovery action at the federal level. On January 13, the federal government must Answer the youths’ Complaint.
