Youth v. GOV is the story of the Juliana v. The United States of America constitutional lawsuit and the 21 youths, ages 14 to 25, who are taking on the United States government. Since 2015, the legal non-profit Our Children’s Trust has been representing these youth in their landmark case against the U.S. government for violating their constitutional rights to life, liberty, personal safety, and property through their willful actions in creating the climate crisis that the youth will inherit.
