We believe climate change is a fundamental threat to the lives and livelihood of every human and future generations here in the United States and across the globe.
We believe that bold action by public officials — at all levels of government — is essential to addressing the threat posed by climate change. Too many Democratic politicians consider climate to be just another issue bubbling below the surface of top priorities, and too many advocates are willing to excuse Democratic politicians who tout their states’ coal and oil resources. We need aggressive, progressive champions of climate justice—climate hawks.
Our Vision: Our nation, state, and local governments put in place bold, progressive actions to combat climate change, led by a diverse legion of individual climate hawk leaders who share our beliefs.
Our Mission: To identify, train, and elect individual climate hawk leaders, while generating a political environment in which those leaders have the power to advance policies needed to address climate change.
