Commit to Climate Action ~ June 10


President Trump had no idea his disastrous decision to pull out of the Paris Accord would spur climate action from coast to coast. Dozens of US mayors and governors are already stepping up to commit to the agreement, and this Saturday we can convince hundreds more to do the same with nationwide rallies.

Dear Friends across the US,

When President Trump pulled out of the Paris climate accord last week, brave mayors and governors across the country stood up for the historic agreement. And this weekend we can convince hundreds more to act!

On Saturday, June 10th, thousands will gather in state capitals and at city halls across the country to demand our local leaders commit to acting on climate and the Paris Agreement. If we act fast and act together, we can turn Trump’s disastrous decision on the climate into a watershed moment for our movement.

Join the day of action this weekend to celebrate climate heroes, and urge more mayors and governors to bypass Trump and act on climate.

Immediately after Trump’s speech, the governors of California, New York, and Washington announced the creation of the United States Climate Alliance – a group of states committed to the Paris agreement. Since then, 10 more states have joined — the momentum is building.

Now this weekend, we can push more states to join, and show the world that America won’t back down on climate action. States like Ohio, North Carolina, Maryland and Pennsylvania have all expressed their outrage at the President’s decision. Together, we can move them from outrage to action and urge them to join the bipartisan climate alliance.

Trump thought he could use the Paris Climate Agreement as a political punching bag to score points for his base, and derail global momentum on clean energy. He had no idea that doing so would unleash a tide of commitments to act on climate across the country, commitments that make the clean energy revolution unstoppable.

Avaaz members know that standing up for our climate sometimes means standing up in the streets. Hundreds of thousands of us marched around the world in support of the Paris Climate Agreement in 2015 — let’s do it again to protect what we’ve won and show Trump the only way on to go on climate is forward.

With hope and determination,

Andrew, Iain, Ashley, Sydney and the whole Avaaz Team
