“We have the power to make this the best generation of mankind in the history of the world… or to make it the last.” — John F. Kennedy
Students for a Just and Stable Future (SJSF) is a New England-based student network fighting against climate disruption and political inaction and for a livable planet and a just society for our generation and the generations to come.
We are students and youth who see the scientific reality of the problem, not the so-called “political reality.” We see an urgent need for action, and recognize that the people with the power to determine our futures have so far failed to act.
We are stepping up to stand for justice where our leaders have failed.
Climate change affects low-income populations, the developing world, and youth the most. In other words, the greatest burden of the climate problem has landed on the backs of those who haven’t caused it, have the least leverage and resources to deal with its harms, and have the least amount of power to advocate for solutions.
Climate change is one of the greatest injustices of our time, and we have a moral obligation to fight for solutions.
