The Climate Justice Youth Summit is the largest gathering of its kind in the United States. Hundreds of young people of color gather to learn about climate justice and just transitions through an innovative agenda that is entirely developed and implemented by youth leaders. Scenes from the 2017 CJYS were shot by Rae Breaux and Destiny Mata.
