Schools Speaking Up For Climate Action

We are the generation that will bear the burden of our federal government’s inaction on climate change. Please speak up for us!

We have the technology and the scientific understanding to solve this climate crisis. We know that acting sooner, rather than later makes economic sense. All that we lack is political will. Your voices can help generate political will to solve climate change. Please speak up!

If We Can, We Should – Massachusetts and the new Clean Energy Omnibus Bill

Gari is first-year studying political science with a concentration in comparative politics at Clark University. As a global citizen – having been born in the Philippines, raised in Hong Kong, and finishing high school in New York City – she found her purpose in addressing global issues including climate change. Outside of her work with Our Climate, she is a political staff writer at FreshU.io and a member of Clark's Model United Nations Team and divestment campaign. She is drawn to work on climate change because of its universality and the impact it has on all levels of society, particularly marginalized communities.


My First Month with Our Climate

Emily graduated from The Evergreen State College in 2016 where she focused on environmental justice and policy. During her time there she worked as a food sustainability intern, a computer tech at Evergreen's library, a customer service representative at Olympia's Farmers Market, and as an organizer for Thurston County's "Waste Less Food" Campaign. She moved from Olympia to Seattle in 2017 to participate in the Justice Leadership Program where she worked at Earth Ministry, a nonprofit that aims to mobilize the faith community for equitable climate policy. She's excited to join the team as an organizer. Emily can be reached at emily@ourclimate.us.

Why Our Climate Youth Give

Today’s the day: Giving Tuesday!

I’m sure your inboxes, voicemails, and mailboxes are flooded with #GivingTuesday asks for your support, and we are grateful that this day of giving has gone viral and millions of dollars will be donated today.

Since you’ve decided to learn more about our #GivingTuesday campaign, we wanted to make sure you heard directly from our students about why they give to Our Climate, the #PutAPriceOnIt campaign, and the movement to pass a strong carbon price in states around the country.
