Commit to Climate Policies

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 that we face in Georgia and across the country. These problems are not a partisan issue 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 difficult 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.
