ACTIONS FOR CANDIDATES AND ELECTED LEADERS

Be a leader in politics by standing up against climate change.

More than ever, we need our political leaders to be brave, bold, and fearless. Climate change, environmental injustice, and voting access are some of the many problems we face in Georgia and across the country. These problems are not partisan issues, and Georgians across our state have shown that the environment and climate change matters to them.

We also know that our legislators are busy and may find it challenging to educate yourself on these issues. That’s why we’re here to help. We explain what policies you can support to help fight climate change and protect the environment.

Policies that elected leaders and candidates can support.

As elected officials, it’s important to do more than make promises on campaign trails, seek out GCV’s endorsement or take the candidate pledge. We want elected officials to take real steps to combating climate change and environmental inequities. That’s why we’ve come up with a list of policies that we support in the fight against climate change, environmental harm and inequality. All candidates need to do is sign on.
