Support a Clean Energy Future
Planet Earth—with her wealth of resources—has become the final battleground in the war between corporate avarice and civil society. To preserve democracy, we must work together to build a strong, sustainable economy. That means creating more green jobs (especially for veterans), phasing out fossil fuels in favor of renewables, and keeping a watchful eye on trade policy.
Over the next few months People Demanding Action will be ramping up our support for Congressional legislation that supports these goals and we will be looking for organizers in your community to press federal, state and local governments to implement our clean energy future.
People Demanding Action is serious about addressing climate change and its fallout. We have partnered with Progressive Congress to strengthen our work with the Congressional Progressive Caucus while we work smarter and harder to achieve our climate justice goals.
We recognize that a sound legislative strategy—with strategic partnerships at both the organizational level and through collaboration with grassroots progressive activists—is key to winning on climate and many other issues that affect quality of life—especially in low income communities.
In 2016 we will expand our climate justice work to include state and local advocacy, reaching out to empower communities of color and low-income communities to win this and other crucial social and economic justice battles. We’ll provide issue-focused education, updates, talking points, background materials and research, lobby training, field support, and a full complement of digital organizing tools.
Changes in our climate policy will only happen with people power. If climate is an important issue to you, please sign this petition to be a Citizen Cosponsor of Zero Climate Emissions legislation. We want to tell legislators that there is tremendous support for these policies.
P.S. Our January Progressive Round Table will feature two speakers on climate; Tyler Nickerson from The Solutions Project and James Handley from The Carbon Tax Center. We will be livestreaming the event today starting at 1pm Eastern; you can watch the livestream here.
