People’s Action volunteers are making phone calls across the country to change hearts and minds about our climate crisis. 

Your call can make all the difference!

We’ll be posting more shifts in new states throughout the year! 


U.S. Rep. Rashida Tlaib (MI-13) and Maine State Senator Chloe Maxmin joined People’s Action volunteers and organizers from across the country for this special event to launch our nationwide push for climate justice.

Most of us want the same things: a good life for ourselves and our children, a better future that we can look forward to, and to be treated fairly. 


But right now, corporations are profiting from damaging our climate and dividing people based on race, background, or where we live, harming our communities–and hurting Black and brown, and indigenous people the most. 


That’s why our People & Planet First campaign is focused on:

  • A 100% just energy economy

  • Green jobs

  • Democratizing the energy grid

  • An end to sacrifice zones

To accomplish these goals, we are building a base: starting with a diverse leadership team of the most impacted community members, then connecting local infrastructure fights to the narrative power of the Green New Deal and national recovery efforts. And, we are shifting the winds, pushing for cross-government climate solutions and utilizing deep federal investments for local governance.

We’re all in this together. By coming together like we’ve done in the past to win better wages, civil rights, and other victories, we can build a future where everyone has a chance to thrive, not just the wealthy few.

President Biden and Congress are listening to our communities by including historic investments in the American Jobs Plan and Inflation Reduction  Act. But they don’t go far enough. Experts believe Congress must invest $1 trillion a year to avert climate catastrophe. We must seize this once-in-a-generation opportunity to create over 15 million jobs, ensure a livable planet, and reconstruct our economy – so all of us have what we need to THRIVE.
