The Youth Are Leading the Way! – Aji Piper, Youth Activist


2018-06-17 10:30 2018-06-17 11:45 America/Los_Angeles The Youth Are Leading the Way! – Aji Piper, Youth Activist

Westside UU Congregation  is honored that Aji will be the guest speaker on June 17th. All are welcome at what will be an extraordinary, powerful service! Aji will speak about his love for people, for oceans, for trees, for creatures big and small and for the earth – as well as his commitment to peace and justice. At age 17, Aji has already spoken or performed music for thousands of people. (Curious? Listen to Aji at the 2017 Tedx event!https://tedxseattle.com/talks/kids-sue-the-government-to-fight-climate-change-and-win/) His journey in activism began when he learned about oil trains coming through his city and along the coast and he was driven to take part in protests and legislative hearings. He used songs he wrote and his ukulele to speak about environmental issues. He has since served his community by sitting on the Earth Guardians national RYSE council, and serving as the President of Plant for the Planet a nonprofit dedicated to fighting climate change through planting trees. As one of 21 youth plaintiffs suing the United States Government in a Landmark U.S. Federal Climate Lawsuit, Aji is taking matters into his own hands. He is also plaintiff on another youth-driven lawsuit in which13 young people from across the state of Washington filed a constitutional climate lawsuit against against the state, Governor Jay Inslee, and several state agencies in King County Superior Court. The complaint asserts that in causing climate change, the state of Washington has violated the youngest generation’s constitutional rights to life, liberty, property, and equal protection of the law, and has caused impairment of essential public trust resources.
