19th Annual “Keep Winter Cold”

Take The Plunge For Our Climate

February 10, 2024 

We're Building a Movement To Fight Climate Change
Across Our Region and Beyond.

The biggest ever expansion of fossil fuels is planned on the US coast. But the Biden Administration has the power to stop it.

End the use of dirty and dangerous fossil fuels for water heating, space heating, and cooking in our homes and buildings!

The Responding to Emergency Needs from Extreme Weather (RENEW) Act would invest $9 billion to help address rapidly rising costs of climate change.*

Building massive new fossil fuel infrastructure like the Virginia Ripoff Project is incompatible with our climate goals and inexcusable.

 

*Legislative campaigns are a project of our advocacy arm, CCAN Action Fund.
