  • The 2020 election will massively shape the conditions of the world in which young people grow up, but those who are under 18 are in a unique position: Their future rests on the outcome of the election, yet they can't vote themselves.
  • "We have to save November to save our planet," Alexandria Villaseñor, a 15-year-old climate justice activist and the founder of Earth Uprising, says.
  • "Climate change is the number one voting issue to young people, and it's because it's going to impact every aspect of our lives.
  •   Chanté Davis, a 16-year-old involved with the youth-led climate justice organization, the Sunrise Movement, in Houston, Texas feels similarly about the election.
  • "The election is probably one of the most important we're going to encounter in our lives," Davis says, in reference to young people.
