On August 3, 2017, more than 500 young people from around the country met in New York City to attend the 6th Climate Justice Youth Summit, hosted in Brooklyn by UPROSE.   They shared their stories and built relationships with other young people from frontline impacted communities.

During the  Summit, CJA hosted a youth panel: From the Frontlines of Defense to the Forefront of Transformation: Protecting Water, Land, Air, and Self Determination. The CJA Youth Collective Panel featured young people from across the U.S. and Puerto Rico, who spoke about their resistance to the fossil fuel industry, their experiences with climate disasters,  their commitment to agroecological food production, and the establishment of worker-owned cooperatives.
