Tackling climate change and environmental injustice in Georgia is a big job. We need leaders like you to run office to fight for a brighter future.
Georgia needs fresh leadership at every level of government. The people of Georgia face threats to the air, water, and land that our families and communities depend on every day. For too long, too many leaders have prioritized the interests of big polluters in our state over the health and wellbeing of our people and planet. We need leaders who will fight for cleaner water, cleaner air, expanding renewable energy, and more. We need leaders who understand that thriving communities start with a thriving environment—and a thriving democracy.
As a resident of Georgia, you have a unique and valuable perspective on the issues facing your community. Take a moment to think… what environmental issues have shown up in your life? How have you taken action or shown leadership in addressing the issue? What more do you think can be done? By running for office, you’ll have an opportunity to share your vision, listen, and learn from your community.
