Students for a Just and Stable Future (SJSF) is a student network fighting to ensure a just and stable future for our generation and the generations to come that are threatened by runaway global warming.
We are students who see the scientific reality of the problem, not the so-called political reality. We see an urgent need for action, and we see the failure to act of the adults with the power to determine our futures.
We are stepping up to act for justice where our leaders have failed.
Climate change affects low-income populations and youth the most– in other words, the greatest burden of the problem lands on the backs of those who haven’t caused it, are least able to deal with its harms, and have the least amount of power to enact solutions.
This is the greatest injustice of our time, and we have a moral obligation to fight for solutions.
To this end we campaign for bold, tangible solutions to the climate crisis, we teach the science and impacts of global warming, and we organize for action on our campuses and in our communities. We wrote bills to promote renewable energy and phase out fossil fuel energy in Massachusetts. We campaigned to stop the construction of new fossil fuel infrastructure which would lock us into irreversible warming, like the Keystone XL Pipeline. We helped create a Green Economy Caucus in the Massachusetts State Legislature. We called for an end to fossil fuel subsidies and pushed MA Senate candidates to end the climate silence. And we are calling for our universities toDivest for Our Future by taking our endowment out of fossil fuels and reinvesting the money in socially and environmentally responsible funds.
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
