Throughout history, young people of color from frontline communities have always been on the frontlines of social change. From September 20-21, more than 200 young people traveled from throughout the US, Puerto Rico and Guam to participate in the 7th Annual Climate Justice Youth Summit, the largest gathering of youth of color on climate change in the nation! The inspiring summit, organized by UPROSE and with the support of the Climate Justice Alliance, brought together young leaders to eat, commune, organize and strategize to imagine and learn from each other as they define their local, place-based strategies working toward a Just Transition, away from fossil fuels and other toxic industries and toward more regenerative and renewable economies that leave no one behind. Take a look at the media coverage that was generated by the summit, and check out the photos from Day 1 and Day 2.
