#159CalltoAction: Create a Healthy Planet, Go Local

Take the steam out of Trump’s executive order on climate by going local. No seriously. The Wall-of-Us are on to something. #159CalltoAction #159Enviroment #159BetheChange

"But when the Trump Administration goes low, all-of-us can go local. As Joanna Partin, Director of Carbon Neutral Cities Alliance said just days after the 2106 presidential election:
“Last week’s U.S. election makes clear that subnational actors—especially cities—are America’s only hope now in terms of climate action. Climate policy cannot take a sabbatical and wait another four years or another election cycle for more aggressive action. (emphasis added)”

Here's the 411:

All-of-us must ensure that our cities continue to protect our environment.

Here’s how:
1. Learn about the Compact of Mayors. Check out this useful FAQ. (5 minutes)
2. Call your mayor’s office and see if your mayor has joined the Compact of Mayors. If not, convince them to join. (10 minutes)
3. Ask your City Council members to join the National League of Cities’ efforts to combat climate change by signing this letter. (10 minutes)
