We need to elect leaders who understand the scale of the climate crisis and are willing to take a principled stand against the fossil fuel industry.

Heading in to the 2020 election, America faces crises at every turn. As the pandemic continues to kill thousands, the country can’t go a day without being reminded of the violence its racist police system causes or the destruction climate change is wreaking through fires and hurricanes.

We’re getting out the vote for down ballot climate champions because we know that our communities deserve better — and that we’ll need leaders at every level to achieve a just transition off fossil fuels. Climate justice has been framed for years as exclusively decided by the White House — but some of the most important fights for a just transition happen in our state and city governments.

By electing climate champions to city councils, county commissions, and state houses — we can block permitting for new pipelines, ban fracking across states, or win majorities that can pass massive green jobs bills. But too often, local races are understaffed and underfunded. That’s where you can help.
