Extreme heat and drought. Devastating wildfires. Dirty air threatening people’s health. A record hurricane season. Torrential rains and flooding. This is what the climate crisis looks like. On top of that, our country is also dealing with a pandemic and longstanding racial and economic injustices. Ask your members of Congress to become cosponsors of the THRIVE Agenda and endorse this bold plan of action.
The crises we’re facing are interlocking, so the solutions have to be as well. That is why we’re putting our support behind the THRIVE Agenda. This agenda aligns with Earthjustice’s work to advance holistic solutions that tackle climate change and other pressing environmental issues – we are asking you to urge your member of Congress to lend their support.
The THRIVE (Transform, Heal, and Renew by Investing in a Vibrant Economy) resolution was recently introduced in Congress and is a roadmap to a just recovery from the climate crisis, racial injustice, and a global pandemic.
The THRIVE Agenda puts people first:
• Creates millions of union jobs
• Invests in Black, Brown, and Indigenous communities
• Fights environmental injustice
• Averts climate catastrophe
• Reinvests in public institutions
The time is ripe for transformative change.
