Eugene, Oregon – 21 young Americans behind the landmark constitutional climate lawsuit, Juliana v. United States, launched a new campaign. The #Congress4Juliana campaign urges supporters of the Juliana plaintiffs to call, email, and tweet at members of Congress to ask that legislators publicly support the youth plaintiffs and their constitutional rights to life, liberty, and property free from government endangerment.
