The coming month will permanently shape humanity's fight against climate change – so we must push our leaders to act with the conviction we need. Join us in calling on our elected officials to lead by taking action on these four things all on one form on the left side of the screen.
Pass the Build Back Better Act
The climate crisis is accelerating, and we must dramatically cut our carbon emissions if we hope to preserve a livable planet. Meanwhile, our country is facing the intersecting crises of COVID-19, economic injustice, and racial injustice. We must meet the moment with bold action that matches the scale of these crises. That means transforming our economy to build a pollution-free, 100% clean energy future. Tell your members of Congress it’s time to pass the Build Back Better Act to invest big in a sustainable and just future.
Electrify the Postal Service
The U.S. Postal Service is planning to make a major purchase to add up to 165,000 new vehicles to its fleet – the largest civilian fleet in the world. At this critical moment for climate and public health, USPS has an opportunity to invest in zero-emissions electric vehicles that will cut dangerous air pollution in almost every neighborhood across the country. But instead, the Trump-appointed Postmaster General who still runs the USPS is proposing to double down on polluting trucks that harm communities and our planet. These new postal trucks will be on the roads for decades – and we need to make sure they are electric. Join us in calling on the Postal Service to commit to 100% electric vehicles.
Stop the Line 3 Pipeline
The Anishinaabe people of northern Minnesota have waged a seven-year effort to stop the Line 3 pipeline from being built in the heart of territory where they retain the rights to hunt, fish, and harvest wild rice and other plants. The proposed pipeline would carry 760,000 barrels of tar sands of oil per day, destroying sacred places and locking in decades of rising climate pollution at a time when we cannot afford anymore. Tell the Biden administration to support the people, not the polluters, and stop the Line 3 pipeline.
Protect our public lands and waters from fossil fuels
Vast swaths of public lands and waters have been opened up to private corporations to drill for oil and gas and to mine for coal. As a result, nearly 25% of climate-cooking emissions from the United States come from fossil fuels pumped or mined from lands and waters that belong to the public. It doesn’t have to be this way. The Biden administration has committed to tackling the climate crisis, and we need to help turn these words into action.
