Working with the next generation of leaders, we co-produced three new videos within our series entitled Stories of TRUST: Calling for Climate Recovery. These videos highlight the human rights implications of climate change and seek to compel government officials to protect our shared natural resources.

In June 2013, President Obama released a plan to cut carbon pollution. He addressed our “moral obligation to leave our children a planet that’s not polluted or damaged.” As part of this initiative, Xiuhtezcatl Martinez, the TRUST youth plaintiff from Colorado, was selected for the Presidential Youth Council which will advise the president on the perspectives of youth, offer suggestions on the design and implementation of youth policies and create shared recommendations on issues that will affect the long-term future of our country.
