About WA Youth for Climate Justice:
“Washington Youth for Climate Justice is a youth-led organization fighting for climate justice through an upheaval of the current socio-political systems. We emphasize the power of community organizing and solidarity by empowering youth leaders and pushing for revolutionary change through action and collectivism. We recognize that young people, specifically those from marginalized communities, are the most threatened by the climate crisis and therefore must be at the forefront of this movement. Our organization embodies a facet of our vision for an anti-capitalist, anti-colonial revolution; a multi-faceted coalition made up of the working class, young people, people of color, indigenous people, womxn, LGBT+ folks, those with disabilities, immigrants, and all other communities who have been marginalized by the oppressive systems we are dismantling.”
