NextGen Climate

ORGANIZATION

NextGen Climate acts politically to prevent climate disaster and promote prosperity for every American. https://nextgenclimate.org

 

GOAL

Demonstrate the health and economic impacts of gutting the Environmental Protection Agency and show that transitioning to a clean energy economy strengthens our national security and creates more jobs than fossil fuels. Educate voters and mobilize activists to hold the Trump administration accountable and to mobilize voters in future elections.

 

MESSAGE

Gutting the Environmental Protection Agency will make Americans sick, and harm our economy.

 

AUDIENCE

General audience, voters. Special focus on those affected by Environmental Protection Agency cuts, including those who live near important bodies of water that will be impacted by serious cuts to water protection and cleanup measures.
