Mothers Out Front showed up to support the youth plaintiffs, ages 10-21, of Our Children’s Trust (who are suing the federal government for the right to a safe planet) as they appeared for a hearing at the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco on December 11. Mothers Out Front Expansion Organizer Linda Hutchins-Knowles took the train up from San Jose to attend the rally and press conference. Afterwards, she met climate scientist James Hansen, whose granddaughter is one of the plaintiffs; Julia Olson, legal counsel for the youth; and some local mothers who are interested in starting a Mothers Out Front team in San Francisco. All are eagerly awaiting the court’s ruling. You can learn more about this historic case and watch the fascinating hour-long hearing here.
