    Human Rights and the Climate Crisis

    Climate change is the defining issue of our time. It isn’t just an environmental crisis—it’s also a human rights crisis that disproportionately affects at-risk communities and youth. The HRW Student Task Force is campaigning for our 15 LA-area campuses and school districts to transition to 100% renewable energy and to embed climate education across curricula. We are registering and educating climate voters and engaging public officials and candidates running for office in 2022. Our message is clear: we can’t afford to wait any longer.
