National and International Organizations

NRDC "combines the power of more than three million members and online activists with the expertise of some 700 scientists, lawyers, and policy advocates across the globe to ensure the rights of all people to the air, the water, and the wild."

350 is " an international movement of ordinary people working to end the age of fossil fuels and build a world of community-led renewable energy for all."
"Financial giants like BlackRock are not used to the public knowing what they do, much less holding them accountable for the impacts of their investments. Yet, a growing global movement is doing just that."
"The Sunrise Movement is a youth movement to stop climate change and create millions of good jobs in the process. We’re building an army of young people to make climate change an urgent priority across America, end the corrupting influence of fossil fuel executives on our politics, and elect leaders who stand up for the health and wellbeing of all people."
"The Stop the Money Pipeline coalition is over 130 organizations strong. Together we are holding the financial backers of climate chaos accountable."
