About Climate Action RI:
Science tells us that to keep Earth livable, we need urgent political action to bring an end to the fossil fuel era. History tells us that such political action happens only when a mass movement of citizens arises to demand it. 350.org is building that movement internationally, and we at CARI are 350.org's Rhode Island affiliate. Join the movement and make a difference.
