Building Support to Cut Emissions

New rules from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency require states to create plans to reduce power plant emissions. Some states are delaying action, others could be more ambitious. To stem the droughts, fires, floods, and other ecological damage made worse by climate change, Americans are trying to build support for strong state plans.
With $100,000 from The Trust, the BlueGreen Alliance Foundation is mobilizing unions to support clean energy. It also will work with environmental coalitions in several states to develop clean energy economies that provide good jobs.
Our $100,000 grant to Climate Parents will encourage families across the country to advocate for cleaner power plants that put a priority on renewable energy and efficiency. The campaign will focus on how clean energy protects children’s health and our environment.
