We advocate for public policies

that fight climate change across our region and beyond.

NATIONAL

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has the opportunity to make a BIG difference on fossil fuel pollution, but they're behind on several key rules. We're pushing the agency to more and do better. So far, they're listening.

DC

We’re pressuring the DC Public Service Commission (PSC) to REJECT WGL’s multi-billion dollar pollution plan. WGL intends to spend $4.5 billion ratepayer dollars on polluting methane gas infrastructure.

MARYLAND

To help address the rapidly rising costs of climate change, the Responding to Emergency Needs from Extreme Weather (RENEW) Act would invest $9 billion in new revenue to prepare for and recover from escalating natural disasters

VIRGINIA

The legislative session is underway, and with a new climate majority in the General Assembly, climate action is on the docket. Help us fight against fossil fuels and pass bills for clean energy and climate justice.

We're Passing Climate Policies in Virginia

With a new climate majority in the General Assembly, climate action is on the docket.
