DESCRIPTION

With a Trump presidency, state-based climate action has never been more important. It’s the collective fortress of the environmental movement. And state-based, people-powered, climate action is what we do here at the Chesapeake Climate Action Network (CCAN).

We’re the largest and oldest grassroots group fighting for bold and just solutions to climate change in the Chesapeake region of Virginia, Washington DC, and Maryland.

We’ve put a stop to new coal plants in Virginia, brought 100% clean power to Washington DC, and fully banned fracking in Maryland.

OUR CAMPAIGN

In 2020, we’re going to keep fighting: to stop massive fracked-gas pipelines across the farms and forests of Virginia, to bring a Green New Deal to Maryland, and to make DC a national leader on climate action — right in Trump’s backyard.  

We and our 70,000 supporters surrounding the nation’s capital are going to keep building the powerfully diverse grassroots climate movement our region needs – building local resistance, raising our voices, taking concrete action.

And under a Trump presidency, we’ll be fighting for more than energy justice. Trump is a threat to all of our progressive values and we will work with our progressive allies across the region for paid sick days for all workers, an increased minimum wage, and more. We will pitch in wherever we can.
