Organizing for Action


Over the past month, we've seen Hurricane Harvey's record rains displace millions in Texas and Louisiana. We've seen Hurricanes Irma and Maria -- storms worsened by unusually warm water -- leave families picking up the pieces across the Southeast and U.S. territories in the Caribbean. We've seen wildfires burn through millions of acres in our western states.

There can be no doubt: Climate change is here, right now. It's making these extreme weather events worse -- and more than ever, we need people ready to fight back against this administration and other climate deniers.

Tomorrow night, we're hosting a climate leaders call to update organizers on the latest news.

We'll cover the latest on the fight to protect our progress on climate at the national level, and what we can do this fall to push for more action at the state and local level.

You're one of our most active climate supporters, and we'd love for you to join. Here are the details for the call:

What: Monthly climate leaders call
