Calls to Action
- Reach out to somebody, right now, don’t wait—a friend who’s already interested in climate change or one you think cares about social and environmental issues. Ask if they want to go to a climate justice event with you. Sign up to 350.org together, or one of the other groups listed on our website. It adds so much love and support to show up to the climate movement with a friend.
- VOTE! Look up all of your upcoming local, state/provincial, and federal elections, circle them in your calendar, and commit to looking at candidates’ climate justice platforms. Remember the friend from the first call to action, your climate buddy? Make them your voting buddy too! Have a friend or relative that you always vote with so you can hold each other mutually accountable.

If you live in the United States...
