CANCELLED: Our Constitution and Our Children in the Era of Climate Crisis: Juliana v. United States

Julia Olson, Executive Director and Chief Legal Counsel of Our Children's Trust

This lecture has been CANCELLED.

Please join us for the latest installment of the Environmental Law & Policy Program Lecture Series. Julia Olson, Executive Director and Chief Legal Counsel of Our Children's Trust, will speak about Juliana v. United States.

This event is free and open to the public.

Julia Olson graduated from the University of California, Hastings College of the Law, with a J.D. in 1997. For the first part of her 22-year career, Julia represented grassroots conservation groups working to protect the environment, organic agriculture, and human health. After becoming a mother, and realizing the greatest threat to her children and children everywhere was climate change, she focused her work on representing young people and elevating their voices on the issue that will most determine the quality of their lives and the well-being of all future generations. Julia founded Our Children’s Trust in 2010 to lead this strategic legal campaign on behalf of the world’s youth against governments everywhere. Julia leads Juliana v. the United States, the constitutional climate change case brought by 21 youth against the U.S. government for violating their Fifth Amendment rights to life, liberty, property, and public trust resources. Julia and OCT are recipients of the Rose-Walters Prize for Global Environmental Activism. She received the Kerry Rydberg Award for Environmental Activism in 2017 and is a member of Rachel's Network Circle of Advisors. To rejuvenate, Julia loves being high up in the mountains with her family and her dog or playing tunes on her ukulele with friends.
