Mothers are a politically powerful force. When we show up in numbers and ask elected officials to act, they do because:
- We vote.
- We know how to get things done.
- We are natural networkers and connectors.
- It’s about our kids – we are driven to protect them from the harms of fossil fuel pollution and the climate crisis.
Right NOW is a critical time to be using our power. Leaders from around the world will be gathering September 12th-14th in San Francisco for a Global Climate Summit to take action in response to the Trump administration’s withdrawal from the Paris Climate Agreement. We need them to act boldly.
Many of our leaders say they are taking action for clean energy, but are they really?
Recently we interviewed California residents to find out what they know about Governor Jerry Brown’s record on oil and “natural” gas production in California.
