Demand Real Climate Leadership from our New Congress
Right now, we're in a crucial moment to show the strength of our movement for climate justice: presidential hopefuls are starting to announce their candidacies, and new Congressional leaders are defining their priorities for the year ahead. Now, it's up to us to make sure they embrace the bold, just climate action we need.
We have already seen the power of activists mobilizing in the halls of Congress this winter to change the future of climate politics and make the Green New Deal a possibility. So we're hitting the ground running to keep up the momentum.
On February 4-8, help bring the call for Real Climate Leadership to your Congressperson’s doorstep. We will ramp up our call for a Green New Deal by calling on our Representatives to:
Halt all new fossil fuel extraction, infrastructure and subsidies, and transition power generation to 100% renewable energy by 2035 or sooner.
Rapidly decarbonize agriculture and transportation sectors and expand access to public transportation.
Ensure a Fair & Just Transition led by impacted workers and communities, including low income and communities of color, without relying on corporate schemes or market-based mechanisms.
Uphold Indigenous Rights
Pass a national jobs guarantee, creating good jobs with collective bargaining and family-sustaining wages.
