Friends,

Last week, Trump announced that the US would exit the Paris Agreement. Since then, everyone from US mayors and governors to global leaders have reaffirmed their commitment to this historic climate deal — and dozens have stepped up to go further.

On Saturday, June 10th, we’re mobilizing at City Halls and State Houses across the country to defend the Paris Agreement and show that we are still ready to move our country towards 100% clean energy.

We will celebrate those cities, states, and other institutions who have committed to meet or exceed the goals of the Paris Agreement regardless of the US’ involvement — and urge those who haven't committed to take action now.

The Paris Agreement is far from perfect, but leaving it would be a huge step backwards. Following the hottest year on record we need climate progress — leaving the Paris Agreement is the exact opposite.

Join us on Saturday and let’s show the world that we’re committed to climate action, with or without Trump.

Now more than ever it’s important that we come together in our cities and states to fight for climate action. Meaningful leadership has always come from the grassroots, and in the face of a climate-denying President, local, state, and regional progress is the only thing we’ll see.

On April 29th, we focused on Washington, DC for the Peoples Climate March, and over 200,000 people showed up. We need that same energy now, distributed across the country.

Join us Saturday and let’s keep building our local movements for climate justice.

See you soon,
Charlie
