Climate First! -- Going Beyond Legislation

If you think lobbying politicians, regulators, or the current administration will save the climate, think again! Whether it's confronting a huge bank over its financing of climate-wrecking fossil fuels, or encouraging a municipality to adopt a clean energy program, Climate First! is all about direct action to address the impending climate crisis.

Our mission is pretty simple:

Climate First! strives to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and promote clean energy in the Mid-Atlantic region, by organizing grassroots efforts that encourage corporations and local governments to think climate first.

And how has Climate First! done?

Pretty well...

Finally, if you wonder what our direct actions against banks are like, here are three short videos. The first video shows a Climate First! rally at a Chase Bank branch in Bethesda, MD, on February 8, 2020. The second video shows a Climate First! march and "climate strike" on September 27, 2019 against a JPMorgan Chase branch in downtown Silver Spring, Maryland. The third one is a Climate First! protest on April 10, 2019 inside a Wells Fargo branch in Washington, D.C.
