We advocate for public policies

that fight climate change across our region and beyond.

MARYLAND

The Climate Solutions Now Act of 2022 is another important step forward: mandating 60% statewide reductions by 2031, net-zero emissions by 2045, and investing in communities. Now we need to achieve those goals!

VIRGINIA

Governor Glen Youngkin (R) is trying to STOP Virginia from getting hundreds of millions of dollars for climate progress by pulling out of the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative. Tell your state representatives to say no.

NATIONAL

Historic climate legislation is finally here. The federal Inflation Reduction Act will dedicate $370 billion to clean energy and get us in line with the science. Learn more about this bill's many strengths and key weaknesses.

End the use of dirty and dangerous fossil fuels for water heating, space heating, and cooking in our buildings, which account for over 50% of carbon emissions in our county!
