6th Climate Justice Youth Summit
Calling all previous Climate Justice Youth Summit (CJYS) participants, it’s that time of the year again! That’s right, NYC’s 6th Climate Justice Youth Summit is fast approaching and this year’s summit will undoubtedly be the most important one to date considering our political situation. In years past CJYS successfully gathered 750 youth who live locally in the most vulnerable communities of NYC to learn and work to address climate justice. This year, we set a goal of educating and transforming even more. With your help young people of color all over the city will become organizers with the ability to take hold of their own future and be the change they want to see.
UPROSE’s Climate Justice Youth Summit is the largest gathering of the young people of color on climate change in the country. This year we are partnering with the Climate Justice Alliance, Muevete, the House of Fa Mulan and others while expanding the summit’s from a New York City based event to a national dialogue between youth leaders of color from Flint, Michigan; the Gulf South; Standing Rock; and the Global South. This is a Call to Action! Young people of color are on the frontlines of the climate crisis, now is the time to power up! Register Here!
