We can’t let a climate-denying racist into the White House next year, and we have to hold the Democrats to their promises.
To do that, we have to organize. We know that when we do, we can shift what’s politically possible in this country. The climate movement’s tireless bird-dogging efforts during the primary resulted in Hillary Clinton’s opposition to the Keystone XL Pipeline and Atlantic drilling. The Democrats have now ratified the strongest climate platform to date, thanks to the leadership shown by local activists across the country fighting to #keepitintheground.
We can't sit this out. Here's our plan for this election. It gets underway soon:
- Birddogging candidates: We'll show up at events across the country to push Democrats to keep their climate promises, and call out climate deniers for their dangerous lies.
- Getting out the vote in crucial states: 350 Action has never tried this before, but if there ever was a time to start, this is it. We'll use the climate movement's powerful networks on the ground in swing states to get folks to the polls, and set up a system to call key voters in the most important states to make sure they turn out.
- Tell our story from the ground: We will tell the story of the thousands of people stepping up to stop hate and denial. That way the next President starts on Day 1 knowing that there is a powerful movement everywhere that cannot be crossed without consequences.
Pledge to take action to stop Trump and make sure the Democrats get serious about climate change.
