Creating a Legacy of Change
Elders Climate Action is a non-partisan movement of elders committed to making our voices heard.
We are determined to change our nation’s energy policies while there is still time to avoid catastrophic changes in the earth’s climate.
Because of this concern and because we vote consistently, elders are in a unique position to influence national policy.
We are committed to using our voices, our votes, and our collective power to push for policies that will
reduce greenhouse gases to a level consistent with life thriving on our planet.
