Tell our leaders: We want strong climate action now
This petition had 127 supporters
One of my greatest memories of childhood is horseback riding with my mom through winding trails behind our house. This was also when I first noticed the impact humans can have on their environment: over time, the trails started disappearing and trees were getting cut down to make room for huge housing developments - many of which remained empty for years. I soon learned that humans are having an impact on their environment all over the world, and that we need to work to protect it.
Becoming a fellow with NextGen Climate was a great way for me to take action to protect New Hampshire’s natural environment. My work as an organizer at Manchester Community College has brought me in touch with a lot of fellow students and I’ve come to realize that people of my generation are passionate about climate change and want solutions. It also gave me the chance to bring these concerns directly to candidates for elected office and show them that there were a lot of people my age who were demanding action on climate.
We know that when people come together and work hard, great things can be achieved. NextGen’s push for 50% clean energy by 2030 was a big success, but there’s more work to be done. That’s why we’re pushing all presidential candidates to commit to 100% clean energy by 2050.
Join me in standing up for the environment - sign this petition and tell the candidates that we demand strong climate action.
