On September 8, hundreds of thousands of people rose up in more than 900 cities around the world with a clear message: the climate solutions we need can’t wait a moment longer, and we need leaders who will take bold action.
Now, it’s time for us to take that momentum from the streets to the ballot box.
The last four years have been the hottest ever on record. Climate disasters — from wildfires blazing across the West to superstorms threatening communities from Hawaii to Florida — are putting our lives and homes at risk.
The science is undeniable, and two-thirds of people in the US agree it’s time to transition away from fossil fuels to renewable energy.
We need bold action like a Green New Deal that would put millions of people across the country to work in green jobs building strong communities and a safe climate. But as long as lawmakers fear fossil fuel industry lobbyists more than they respect your vote, that won’t happen.
We want lawmakers to take climate change seriously. And that means we need to take our votes seriously.
Let's make it count. Pledge to vote for real climate leadership in 2018.
