Climate Justice and Human Rights: A discussion with Kelly Matheson and Jordan Diamond

Panel Discussion | October 23 | 12:45-2 p.m. | 110 Boalt Hall, School of Law


Kelly Matheson, WITNESS; Jordan Diamond, Center for Law, Energy and the Environment

Human Rights Center, Center for Law, Energy, & the Environment


WITNESS sr. attorney and Our Children's Trust board president Kelly Matheson joins CLEE's Jordan Diamond and other guests to discuss climate justice and human rights, and the exiting ongoing Juliana vs. United States case, which is scheduled for hearing in U.S. District Court on Oct 29, 2018. The lawsuit, brought by 21 youth plaintiffs, alleges that the US government, through its 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. Our Children's Trust is litigating the suit. This event is a collaboration between the HRC and CLEE.
