To change everything, we need everyone - including YOU!
Citizens of 188 countries across the planet are taking action to keep fossil fuels in the ground and usher in a just transition to a 100% renewable energy economy, and some of us are right here in Maine! As Mainers, we see how the climate crisis is hitting all of us, right now, from farmers in the County to lobstermen off our coasts.
We're collaborating with towns, schools, environmental groups and people across the state, and we're ready to hear YOUR ideas on what comes next.
Whatever your strengths are, whether you're a poster painter, letter writer, protest marcher--or you're just not sure what to do--we've got a home for you. Come join us!
