#Youthvgov slideshow: Curcuit Court in San Francisco

#Youthvgov in San Francisco

It was a day of networking and education for the #youthvgov team in San Francisco on Sunday, Dec. 10, 2017. On Monday the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals will hear oral argument over whether the Trump Administration can evade trial currently set for February 5, 2018. 

On Monday, December 11, #youthvgov plaintiffs stand before the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals to ask that their case be allowed to proceed to trial, despite the Trump administration's efforts to dismiss this case and deny the rights of a generation.

"What strikes me most is that our generation is not really heard when it comes to the question: In what kind of world do we want to live in the future?"

"'Every week, or even every day, that our trial is delayed is time I spend further worrying about the stability of our climate system and the security of my future,' Kelsey Juliana.

Bird on a wire

A small sparrow puffs up its feathers as it perches on an electric fence around an orchard during a rain shower in rural western Oregon on Tuesday, Nov. 28, 2017. Birds puff up their feathers in order to trap more air in them, which is then warmed by their body heat and keeps the bird warm on a cold winter day.
Another sparrow hangs on as the wind blows and the rain falls sideways.
