Please join the Olympia Meaningful Movies Group, the Thurston Climate Action Team and Our Children’s Trust for the award winning film, YOUTH v GOV, produced by Barrelmaker Productions and Vulcan Productions! This event is part of a series of Meaningful Movies screenings and community conversations for this incredibly important and timely film. With news of devastating storms, increasing wild fires raging around the world, and other stories of environmental devastation, this hopeful and often joyful film is more important than ever.

YOUTH v GOV is the story of America’s youth taking on the world’s most powerful government, filing a ground-breaking lawsuit against the U.S. government. They assert it has willfully acted over six decades to create the climate crisis, thus endangering their constitutional rights to life, liberty, and property.

The Juliana plaintiffs represent the diversity of America’s youth impacted by the climate crisis. Hailing from across the country, they encompass cultural, economic racial, and geographic diversity, with many from marginalized communities, and their stories are universal. Their diversity speaks not only to the impacts of climate change, but to the inclusion required if we are to build a better, more just future together. If these young people are successful, they will not only make history, they will change the future.
