Today’s Action: Climate Strike TOMORROW

The European Parliament has declared a global climate and environmental emergency. This strong statement comes mere weeks after Trump confirmed America’s withdrawal from the Paris Climate Accord.

The U.S. has contributed more to the climate crisis than any other country on Earth. But with our GOP leaders promoting the deep pockets of the fossil fuel industry over the lives of billions who have already started to feel the effects of our damage, we do not have time to wait for a new administration to own up and fix this global disaster.

Tomorrow, December 6, as world leaders gather in Madrid for the United Nations’ COP25 (a climate change conference), concerned Americans have their own gathering: it’s time for another Climate Strike.

Join tomorrow’s Climate Strike, with events across the country. Send a message to Trump, to the United Nations, and to your local leadership, that our country’s passive stance on climate change is unacceptable.

It is imperative that we do not stay silent, and it’s not just about sending Trump our disapproval. Because even as we work to bring in a new president in 2020, our city mayors and state governors can commit NOW to the Paris Climate Agreement, even if our country as a whole does not.

24 states and 438 cities in the U.S. have already signed on. Adding your voice to your local Climate Strike tomorrow – and following it with a phone call – can be part of the movement to pull in our 25th state or our 439th city. Because, frankly, our planet can’t afford for the United States to wait another year.

Add your voice to tomorrow’s Climate Strike, and follow with a phone call to your state and city leadership to adhere to the Paris Climate Agreement (has your governor and mayor signed on yet?), since Trump won’t.
