Climate Voter
Take the Climate Voter Pledge!
October 11, 2020

Between wildfires, droughts, and flash floods, it's clear that we are already beginning to experience the effects of climate change. However, if we act immediately and decisively, we still have time to cut our pollution and accelerate solutions. Some of the strongest climate actions we can take right away are to make sure to vote AND get others to vote.

Our democracy is stronger when more people participate. Voting also builds greater accountability with our elected officials. With more people showing up and voting, we all help ensure that our leaders take strong and swift action on what’s needed to address the climate crisis—and not bend to the influence of well-funded corporate polluters and fossil fuel interests.  

It's both our right and our responsibility to do our research, and then vote our values on climate, racial injustice, addressing COVID-19, and myriad other issues.  

By signing the pledge, you:

  1. Commit to voting this election. Make sure you're registered at your current address, and return your ballot by November 3rd (or as early as possible!).
     
  2. Get at least three more people to register to vote or update their registration information.
     
  3. Tell candidates that your support depends on their commitment to climate and racial justice.
