Join 350 Seattle on Sunday August 13th from 3-7pm at All Pilgrims Church for a family-friendly afternoonof music, art and activities, and meet some of the youth plaintiffs with Our Children’s Trust suing the US Government for their legal right to a stable climate and a healthy atmosphere for all present and future generations.

This family friendly event features live music from 11 different artists from all over the Pacific Northwest, art builds for kids, and will educate and raise money for our partner organization, Our Children’s Trust (www.ourchildrenstrust.org).

Featured speakers include youth plaintiffs of the landmark U.S. Federal climate lawsuit,

JULIANA v. U.S. CLIMATE LAWSUIT asserting that, through the government’s affirmative actions that cause climate change, it has violated the youngest generation’s constitutional rights to life, liberty, and property, as well as failed to protect essential public trust resources. Bill McKibben and Naomi Klein have called their case the “most important lawsuit on the planet right now.”

“Exercising my ‘reasoned judgment,’ I have no doubt that the right to a climate system capable of sustaining human life is fundamental to a free and ordered society.” –- U.S. District Judge Ann Aiken

This event is also celebrating the launch of the Protect What You Love album, a project, lifting up musicians from around the Pacific Northwest, writing songs of climate and social justice.

The album features original music by:

Paul Wagner (Saanich, B.C.), Aji Piper (a plaintiff in the Case), Quincy Davis (Hip Hop, Portland, OR), Ale Blakely, Isaac Castillo, Columbia City Chorus, Erika Lundahl, Tobias The Owl, Eric Herbig, Kaeley Pruitt, Annie Sea, Paul Schiavo, Marika Clymer
