Rural, small town, and tribal communities are already experiencing the impacts of climate change and are a critical part of any potential solution. We work alongside rural Americans, small business owners, farmers and ranchers, community leaders, and young people to advocate for measures that address climate change and create new opportunities in rural places.
As we work to reduce carbon emissions, we advocate for investments in renewable energy, more efficient use of energy in our daily lives, and agricultural practices which sequester carbon. Meanwhile, we assist in amplifying the voices of rural Americans so they are heard in national conversations about climate change.
Rural Americans are having the difficult conversations and committing to do their part in addressing climate change, and we’re proud to stand with them.
