Final results of the #GivingTuesday fundraiser: Climate First! received $1,740 in donations during #GivingTuesday earlier this week. No, Climate First! didn't reach its fundraising goal, but we are grateful for the gifts that the nonprofit did receive. You can rest assured that we'll continue to pressure corporations to always think climate first. Thank you for your support!
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?

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