Age 18, 1st Cohort U.S. Youth Advisory Council UN Ocean Decade Member


1st and 2nd Cohort Members of U.S. Youth Advisory Council for the UN Ocean Decade Organize Successful Hill Days in Washington D.C.

The Policy Committee of the US Youth Advisory Council for the UNOD successfully wrapped their November US Hill Days wherein we spoke to Congresspersons and legislative aides regarding policy that will protect our futures!

The First Cohort members prepared and coordinated with Second Cohort members for successful meetings, and we brought friends along! Youth across the United States and Territories — US YAC UNOD members and non-members alike — sought support for three bills: the Ocean Based Climate Solutions Act, Magnuson-Stevens Act, and Break Free From Plastic Pollution Act.

This experience not only exercised our minds to understand the legislative process, but it also provided a space for youth to be voices for their communities!
