It's a New Day for Climate Action

US Elected Officials

It’s a new day for climate action, and we’re calling on our elected officials to address one of the most pressing issues of our time -- tackling the climate crisis. Not only do climate change and pollution threaten to destroy our environment beyond recognition and leave our children and grandchildren with an uninhabitable landscape, but they also intersect with the three other pressing issues of our time -- the COVID-19 pandemic, the resulting economic collapse, and the racial justice reckoning we are facing.

At the February 24th #TimeToAct on Climate New Day Digital Rally, we expressed our support for President Biden’s vital Build Back Better plan, and urged our elected leaders to take immediate action on the global emergency that is the climate crisis. But we must continue to mount pressure on our public officials to meet the magnitude of this issue with equally aggressive measures. That is why we are putting our names on this #TimeToAct petition: to drive our movement forward.

Climate change is not a far-off disaster, but a catastrophe of the present. No one knows this better than the Black, Brown, and Indigenous communities who are forced to bear the brunt of pollution and the climate crisis. Racial equity and the climate are deeply intertwined, which is why we need to center environmental justice in every climate policy conversation.

President Biden has made good on his promise to invest in under-resourced communities with an executive order calling for 40% of the benefits from the federal government’s investments in a clean energy revolution to go toward these communities. His executive order drives support to the communities that are grappling with the worst effects of climate change here and now, as well as the systemic inequities posed by economic and racial injustices. However, we need to see this promise solidified through further and continued government action.

Our window to take meaningful action to prevent the worst impacts of climate change is rapidly closing. That’s why it’s #TimeToAct on climate -- there is not a moment to waste. When Americans showed up to the polls in November, they provided a clear mandate to act on the climate crisis. It’s time for our policymakers to follow through with the will of the American people.

Add your name and tell our leaders it is #TimeToAct on climate.

But now we need action. I am asking you to join us on a national response to recommit to #ActOnClimate. It’s #TimeToAct!
