We are a citizen action group committed to requiring local candidates to take action on the climate crisis.  As climate crisis activists, we recognize the need to move the climate discussion out to the community. This is a non-partisan grassroots effort to reach beyond the ‘choir’. The current political division has made this into an ‘issue’; in fact, it is a worldwide crisis and the victims are our children and all living organisms. We see this as ordinary people like ourselves using our vote to override the fossil fuel industries’ 1/2 billion dollar political lasso that effectively prevents elected officials from doing their job.
