Atmospheric Trust Litigation/Oregon

This beautiful young woman joined the March 3 weeks ago in eastern Nebraska. Kelsey,18, will be a college freshman this fall and wants to major in environmental science, but wants to go all the way to DC and is deferring the start of school. She is an absolute delight!

Kelsey is a co-plaintiff in a lawsuit against the state of Oregon asking for a scientifically viable carbon reduction plan that reduces co2 emissions by 6% each year. There are comparable actions in many other states. They are going through the courts because our legislative branches are failing to properly address the climate crisis. Her case was recently reversed by the appellate court to the Oregon trials court after being dismissed in 2011. These courageous young people are suing for the right to a livable and healthy future. Go Kelsey!
