We are working to file new legal action in Ohio. If you live in Ohio and would like to get involved, please contact us.
Our Children's Trust helped Ohio youth and partners take important action toward achieving scientifically adequate emission reductions in the state. The rulemaking petition referenced below was part of our strategically coordinated national effort in which youth filed official actions in every state in May, 2011.
This rulemaking petition filed on behalf of Ohio youth raised awareness in the state about the scientific remedies necessary to address climate change and educated state officials about their duty to protect the atmosphere. But, the petition was denied by state officials. We are now shaping our next steps in Ohio, and are also supporting youth from around the U.S. in the landmark climate lawsuit against the entire U.S. federal government.
