CCAN is a leader in the climate fight in Maryland, DC, and Virginia. Rooted in community organizing, we work with and empower everyday people, leverage strategic organizational relationships, and use a diverse toolbox of tactics to fight climate change in affected communities, especially the most vulnerable. We educate, inspire, and mobilize to develop local climate leaders and advocate for cutting-edge policies that build a more sustainable and just future. Our campaigns go on to serve as models across the region and country for effective and ambitious climate action.
With your help, we’re taking back the power from polluters and putting it into the hands of the people.
The Polar Bear Plunge is CCAN’s largest fundraiser and our signature event, powering victories to move our region off of fossil fuels and on to clean energy. Each year, activists, friends and families show their commitment to fighting climate change by jumping in the icy Potomac River at National Harbor.
Register today to take the plunge or gather a team of friends, family, or co-workers to fundraise together. We will give you all the tools and guidance you need to have a fun and successful plunge! www.keepwintercold.org
