Advocating for public policies

to fight climate change across our region and beyond.


Maryland's new 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!


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.


It's not too late to pass historic climate legislation. The federal Anti-Inflation Reconciliation investment package would dedicate $555 billion to clean energy and get us in line with the science. Urge Congress to act now.

Where are we with federal climate legislation? CCAN Action Fund Executive Director, Mike Tidwell, says, "It's now or never."
