Support the Civilian Climate Corps
Over 80 years ago, the Civilian Conservation Corps put millions of Americans to work building out the infrastructure for our public lands. Today, we have the opportunity to take that brilliant idea even further, with a focus on good paying jobs that restore our climate and invest in working class communities.
The Civilian Climate Corps (CCC) legislation proposed by climate hawks Senator Ed Markey and Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez would create 1.5 million new jobs with good pay and benefits, help communities transition to a clean energy future, build community resilience, reduce carbon emissions, and more – all while prioritizing low-income and BIPOC communities.
It’s no wonder 65 percent of voters support the CCC. Now let’s make sure Congress knows it.
Write to your members of Congress now and urge them to support the Civilian Climate Corps for Jobs.
