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.

As the EPA finalizes new rules to put a stop to harmful fossil-fuel pollutants, climate activists look forward to the next steps

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

The General Assembly just passed some good policies, but it’s not nearly enough. Read what we missed, and what’s next.*

The 2024 legislative session just wrapped and it was largely successful! But we’re not done yet fighting for climate justice.

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