Fight Back Against Trump’s Attack on Climate Action

Target: Tom Perez, Chairman, Democratic National Committee

Goal: Ensure Democratic National Committee takes leadership role in state and local movement to uphold Paris Climate Accords.

President Trump has removed the United States from its commitment to the Paris Climate Agreement. In response, a growing movement, including state and local governments, companies, and universities has pledged to continue pursuing fulfillment of the accord.

The diverse coalition organized by former New York mayor Michael Bloomberg ranges from states such as New York and California, cities like Salt Lake City, Pittsburgh and Atlanta, to influential companies including Shell, Apple and Morgan Stanley. It aims to push for continued reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and submit a renewed pledge of climate action to the United Nations.

This presents an opportunity for the Democratic National Committee to assume a leadership role on climate change. Its nationwide infrastructure and influence could be used to grow the coalition and connect with voters on an issue which has widespread acceptance. Over 60 percent of those surveyed in a recent poll conducted by Yale University believe in man-made climate change, and a further 75 percent support more strict regulation of carbon dioxide emissions.

Upcoming mid-term elections in 2018 and high-profile governor’s races in Ohio and Michigan are critical for rebuilding the Democratic party and beating back Republican efforts to completely disengage from addressing climate change. Please sign the below petition urging leadership of the Democratic National Committee to seize this opportunity for political redemption, restoration of global trust and planetary survival.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Chairman Perez,

I am writing to urge that you publicly support the growing coalition of states, cities, companies and universities pledging to defy the Trump Administration and continue pushing for fulfillment of the Paris Climate Accord. You have a chance to rebuild the Democratic Party through connection with voters on an issue which has broad acceptance.

The upcoming 2018 mid-term elections and governor’s races in Michigan and Ohio will be absolutely critical for beating back the dangerous Republican agenda. Please seize this opportunity for political redemption through adoption of climate change as a central rallying issue for the party.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
