SOCAN August 2022 Monthly Meeting
SOCAN's Monthly Meeting topic is Youth v. Gov: Updates from Our Children's Trust - a presentation by Phil Gregory, Of Counsel with Our Children's Trust with an update on where the legal cases filed by Our Children’s Trust stand, and what the future seems to hold.. The meeting is on zoom on Tuesday Aug 30, 2022 at 6 p.m. PT. Register here. "The youth of the world are those who will suffer most if we fail to address the climate crisis. Our failure to address this crisis is why many young people are angry and others are simply disillusioned. Some, meanwhile, have joined forces through the Eugene-based nonprofit law firm, Our Children’s Trust (OCT), to take legal action. This action takes the form of lawsuits against federal and state governments for their actions violating the youth’s constitutional rights and harming both young people and the natural resources they hold in trust for future generations". "YOUTH v GOV is an independent film by acclaimed Director Christi Cooper, Barrelmaker Productions and Vulcan Productions. It tells the story of the groundbreaking youth climate case, Juliana v. United States. It is available for viewing via Netflix. Please try to watch the video before the program."
