Our
Movement

We are making our demands clear.

On October 29th, 2021, the Youth Climate Finance Alliance demands JP Morgan Chase, the world’s largest funder of fossil fuels, to commit to end financing fossil fuel expansion by 2022.

In 2021, we’re declaring the end
to the era of fossil fuels.

The leading climate justice groups are teaming up to target financial institutions that are funding the fossil fuel industry. We will no longer sit back as governments, banks, insurance companies, and private institutions knowingly steal our futures.

We’re on a mission to ensure that the truth of the climate crisis comes to light: continued climate destruction is the product of corporate greed.

Our
Goals

We are making our demands clear.

Our movement relies on empowering local movement builders who are trained, supported, and funded to execute the tactics best suited to mobilize their communities.

The grassroots may not sit at the
table with the finance industry,
but their power will be felt in the
decision-making rooms.
Our goals are to:

1A

Stop the Harm

End financial institutions' financing of and alliances with corporations that threaten humanity and a livable planet.

2A

Make Corporations Pay

Hold financial institutions liable for the harm they have caused and continue to commit.

3A

Invest in the World We Want

Reinvest in economic sustainability and support alternative financial institutions that permanently place people before profit.

Our
History

We are making our demands clear.

The climate justice movement is no stranger to direct actions that transform the national dialogue.

On September 20th, 2019, over
650,000 people rallied across
1,300 events to demand elected
officials address the climate crisis with
urgent policies.

We are not stranger to taking direct action.

In what became the largest climate demonstration in history, young people and adult allies across the united states joined 7 million people worldwide to demand transformative solutions.

The September 2019 climate strikes occurred in all 50 states (including over 250,000 people in nyc alone), Puerto Rico, and DC. The climate strikes represented the power of a youth-led and decentralized national campaign.

We are not stranger to taking direct action.
We are not stranger to taking direct action.

With an intergenerational and intersectional coalition of 200+ movement partners behind us, youth climate activists made it clear that 2019 would only be the beginning of an ongoing movement to usher in a new era of the climate movement that protects our future.

On earth day 2020, our movement shifted online as we mobilized a three day live stream event. Reaching over 5 million viewers, earth day live showed the power of our movement to reach people where they are.

Both offline and online, we have continued to mobilize, march, and rally to demand urgent policies from our world leaders.
