In 2015, twenty-one youths filed what has become a landmark constitutional climate change lawsuit. “Juliana vs the United States of America” alleges the federal government violated the plaintiffs’ constitutional rights by facilitating energy policies that cause climate change. These young people have demonstrated through their resourcefulness and creative thinking, where there is a will, there is hope to stop climate change.

In celebration of Earth Day, the non-profit organization, Campus Climate Corps is partnering with Broward County Public Schools (BCPS) to present a special viewing of “Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power,” a film which will inspire students by showing “the perils of climate change can be overcome with human ingenuity and passion.” This educational program facilitated by the Broward Chapter of the Democratic Environmental Caucus of Florida will take place on April 11, 2018 at Fort Lauderdale’s Savor Theater. Broward Schools have been provided with curriculum and discussion guides specifically developed by the National Wildlife Federation to supplement the film’s showing. Two hundred BCPS students will gain knowledge and skills to fight climate change, like the youth plaintiffs in Juliana vs. the U.S.

As part of the program, Mayor Beam Furr and Senator Nan Rich will address the issue of climate change and resiliency. After viewing the film, students will have the unique opportunity to participate in a learning question and answer session with Dr. Jennifer Jurado, Broward County’s Chief Resilience Officer and Director of the Environmental Planning and Community Resilience Division.

This educational program has been made possible in part by the financial support of Mayor Beam Furr, as well as by Gregory Von Hausch, President and CEO of the Fort Lauderdale Film Institute who has donated use of the Savor Theater.

I am writing to ask for your additional financial support to bring this opportunity to BCPS students. Tax-deductible contributions may be made via this link at Contributions of $200 and above received by April 6, 2018 will be acknowledged both on the screen and in the theater lobby. All contributions will be acknowledged in program related materials and social media. Levels of giving include $500 and above, $201 and above, and gifts up to $200. No contribution is too small.

As a longtime member of the Broward County Climate Change Task Force and Chair of the Broward Chapter of the Democratic Environmental Caucus of Florida, I, like you, am greatly aware of the impacts on society, our economy, and public health caused by global warming and rising seas. By making a contribution, you are providing future climate leaders with the scientific knowledge and policy-building skills to combat the effects of climate change in our communities and the world. I hope we can count on your support. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions.

Best Regards,
Adrienne Kaltman,  J.D.
Chair, Broward County Democratic Environmental Caucus
