We all need clean air to breathe, a fair and prosperous economy, and a safe and secure nation. But climate change and the pollution that causes it threaten all of that and more, putting the health and well-being of all Americans at risk — and hitting hardest those who can least afford it, exacerbating racial, gender, and class inequality. We’re standing up to corporate polluters who put their profits before people, poison our air and water, and hold our economy back. Transitioning to clean energy will prevent damage to our climate, ensure our kids have clean air and water, and create millions of good-paying jobs.
Climate change is the defining challenge of our time, inextricably linked to our health, prosperity, and equality. Preventing climate disaster is at the heart of NextGen America’s mission.
