The climate crisis is disproportionately and immediately impacting our Black, Indigenous, and People of Color communities. Climate justice is racial justice. A better world is possible — for all of us, and our reality is demanding it now.
Join us to take action together and use your voice for climate justice. You’ll have an opportunity to write a letter to your legislators calling for policy change.”
