Our Annual Report

May 3, 2021

Climate action is at the crux of everything we fight for, whether it’s renewable energy, clean transportation, environmental justice, building efficiency, or green jobs with family-sustaining wages. It’s also the top issue that we demand candidates for office prioritize if they want our support and the top issue we ask our members to consider when making decisions at the ballot box. And climate change is the reason we make clean water, open space, and reducing waste our top priorities year after year.

That’s why we are excited to publish our inaugural Annual Report so that we can provide a progress report on our advocacy, programmatic, and development goals.

You can view the report in double-page spreads or as single-pages.
