Rise Above: Protect your right to a stable climate and healthy environment!

People around the world are rising above the challenges of the climate crisis and reaching for a better future for us all. The movement is diverse and strong – from disaster survivors, frontline communities, Indigenous Peoples, farmers, youth, grandmothers, and more.  These people are pushing back because fossil fuel companies and governments are failing to protect and respect human rights.

Climate change threatens human rights. We are already experiencing the impacts, including sea-level rise, temperature increase, extreme weather events, and changes in precipitation. These in turn result in human rights impacts, such as loss of land, harm to clean water, reduction of food, dislocation, outbreak of disease, and even loss of life. People cannot and will not accept these threats and are taking action NOW to protect themselves and their families, communities, and future generations.
