Help Us Let The DNC Know It’s Time To Take The Climate Emergency Seriously!
This from our coalition partners at the DNC Environment and Climate Crisis Council
We are excited to share our endorsement of the recently released Environmental and Climate Policy Recommendations for the 2020 Democratic Party Platform, developed by the DNC Environment and Climate Crisis Council, founded to be a strong voice for the climate and for environmental justice in the national Democratic Party.
These bold, science-based recommendations have received strong support from 80+ environmental and Democratic Party organizations. If adopted, they would be the Democratic Party’s boldest, most ambitious climate and environmental platform ever. They include:
- Committing to near-zero emissions, 100% clean renewable energy, and an end to fossil fuel production.
- Developing and implementing a comprehensive national climate action plan.
- Building a green economy and ensuring a just transition.
- Supporting the growth of healthy, just, sustainable communities and addressing disproportionate and legacy harms to frontline and vulnerable communities, including directing 40% of climate and environment investments to those communities.
We need the Democratic Party to step up, to be the party of climate solutions.
