Urge Gov. Abott to Enlist Texas in fight against Climate Change!

In response to Donald Trump's withdrawal from the Paris Agreement, state governors from California, New York, and Washington have stepped up to lead where Trump has failed. These governors have launched a coalition committed to the carbon reduction efforts called for under the Paris Agreement, which has now been joined by a total of 12 states and Puerto Rico. Unfortunately, absent from this coalition is the Great State of Texas! Now as a Texan, that hurts my Texas pride! Texans should be standing up front leading this effort! Gov. Abbott: Enlist Texas in this new coalition and do everything possible...

We the people of Illinois demand from our Governor and elected officials to join this alliance!

North Carolina for the Paris Climate Agreement

North Carolina is already heavily impacted by Climate change, with rising temperatures, lower air quality, and beach erosion and damage from strong storms and hurricanes. Our state should be at the forefront, continuing to lead the country in promoting clean energy, environmental protection practices and investing in new jobs​. North Carolina should join California, Washington, and New York in the Climate Alliance and commit to the Paris Agreement. Let's demand a sustainable future for us and our children.

Senate GOP: stop hiding your healthcare bill from the public

The American people deserve a chance to weigh in on the healthcare debate -- but Senate Republicans are denying us that right by refusing to release their legislation until the last possible minute. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell must be straightforward with the American people, and bring us into the process by releasing the GOP healthcare bill for public scrutiny.

Gov. Holcomb: Indiana must join the U.S. Climate Alliance

Indiana should join the 12 states that have committed to upholding the Paris Agreement. Our state should embrace the opportunity to make a habitable future for ourselves and today's children, as well as create thousands of new jobs in the clean energy sector. By joining the U.S. Climate Alliance, Indiana can demonstrate its commitment to future generations and sustain its population with a booming economy.
