“Things can fall apart, or threaten to, for many reasons, and then there’s got to be a leap of faith. Ultimately, when you’re at the edge, you have to go forward or backward; if you go forward, you have to jump together.”- Yo-Yo Ma

Recognizing Earth Day, April 22nd
Protect Our Earth - Protect Our Children
This year on Earth Day, the League continues our fight to protect those affected by climate change by joining Our Children’s Trust and more than 70 other organizations in endorsing the Children’s Fundamental Climate Rights and Recovery Resolution. This resolution recognizes our current human-caused climate crisis and the hazards it poses to our children’s health and futures. To uphold the fundamental rights of coming generations, the resolution mandates that the United States develop and implement a bold, comprehensive climate recovery plan. The plan seeks to put the nation on a trajectory consistent with reducing global atmospheric carbon dioxide to below 350 parts per million by the year 2100.
The resolution will be introduced in both chambers of Congress on Earth Day, April 22. It was first introduced in the 116th session of Congress and the League is proud to support it again.
Download the press release about the resolution’s reintroduction by 54 members of Congress and 74 endorsers on Earth Day, April 22, 2021 here.
