Let’s Talk Climate – Plymouth!

In our current social and political environment, a lot of us experience the contradiction between what we know is happening to the planet because of climate change, and what we’re doing about it. Not only that, but it can be difficult to raise the subject with the people we see everyday–even though a lot of us are feeling the same thing. We’re thinking about it, but sometimes we feel we can’t talk about it. Well, let’s […]

El cambio climático nos afecta a tod@s

Todos sentimos los efectos del cambio climático, pero algunos sufrimos más. La gente latina suele ser más vulnerable a los impactos del calor y los catástrofes por profesion (48 por ciento de los trabajadores agrícolas son latinos), desventaja económica y estatus migratorio (un inmigrante indocumentado no es elegible para muchos servicios de salud ni puede recibir ciertas ayudas federales en caso de desastre). Para crear soluciones que benfician a todos, necesitamos la participación de todos. Aquí con MN350 […]

Post-Paris Pledge to Defend Our Communities

The Trump Administration has pulled out of the Paris Climate Accords, the binding global agreement created to address climate change. This move represents a grave risk to the health and safety of our communities and our planet. The President has clearly sided with fossil fuel CEO’s and against the American people, 70% of whom believe climate change is happening and want to limit carbon pollution. We cannot rely on corporate elites to face this global crisis.
