FIGHTING FOR OUR FUTURE (AND YOURS).
We are running out of time to address the climate crisis, and the youth need a way to make sure that their society does so, for the sake of our generation and the ones after. That's where we come in. We are the Virginia Youth Climate Cooperative (VAYCC), a youth-led grassroots organization fighting for climate justice in the Commonwealth of Virginia through direct action, education, lobbying, and divestment work.
WHAT WE DO
Our team is made up of youth organizers from all around Virginia, all united under the common goal of climate justice in our state and beyond! Check out our team page to learn more about the state board and regional leads that help manage our organization.
The platform of our organization, written by our policy team built on current climate research and the recommendations of our science and infrastructure teams, are routinely updated based on new data and the current status of climate justice in Virginia. If you're interested in learning more, you can find it here!
How do we make our voices heard everywhere from the Virginia General Assembly to the stock exchange? We are committed to demanding change not only through peaceful direct action, but a variety of other ways, which we describe in much more depth here.
