Demand your governor declare a climate emergency!
Now is a critical moment to sound the alarm on climate change and demand that our governors declare official climate emergencies. That's why on Thursday, July 14 at 7:30pm ET / 4:30pm PT, we're hosting the Now Or Never Launch Party to demand your governor declare a climate emergency.
When a statewide emergency is declared through executive action, the issue area is elevated and the governor gains access to emergency powers that are only available after an emergency is declared. Declaring a climate emergency allows the governor to use those emergency powers to act on climate and bring about accelerated change.
It is important that we shift the public narrative and declare that climate change IS an emergency. Young people have the power and influence to lead this movement and move people to take action. We’re telling our governors, it’s #NowOrNever – because we must enact an emergency response to the climate crisis right now!
Join the call to get inspired, excited, and connected with the youth climate movement. Hear from young people who are already taking action, and learn how you can join them, right in your hometown.
See how we'll use creative tactics to put direct pressure on our governors, leverage the moral authority of young people, and amplify youth voices & stories that move our communities and our governors to take action.
