Youth Climate Justice Spokesperson Bureau

Youth leaders on the frontlines of climate change are stepping up to share their stories! Their authentic and bold narratives are critical in telling the story of our struggles and building support for our campaigns. When individuals or communities develop their own narrative and share their own story, it can move people to take positive action. However, we know that young people and communities on the frontlines of climate change and environmental destruction - communities of color and low income communities - often do not get to tell their own story or their stories are manipulated by the media. That's why Power Shift Network created the Youth Climate Justice Spokesperson Bureau - to increase visibility and support for these awesome change-makers!

Read more about some of the inspiring leaders of color and frontline youth in the Power Shift Network and how you can uplift their stories.

The Spokesperson Bureau web page includes profiles about them and their campaigns as well as recent articles, videos and other content that features their work. If you would like to contact anyone from the Spokesperson Bureau for a speaking engagement or media opportunity OR you are from a PSN member organization and would like to join the bureau, you can email media@powershift.org with “Spokesperson Bureau” in the subject line. You can also find some of the spokespeople's direct contact information on their profile pages.

The Youth Climate Justice Spokesperson Bureau is ever-growing. Check back soon to find more awesome youth climate leaders!
