Video: Climate First!'s Virtual Action vs. Chase Bank, April 23, 2020.
Climate First! Statement Regarding Systemic Racism in the U.S.
Climate First! is in complete solidarity with protesters struggling against the horrific violence of systemic racism. We are committed to climate action centered in racial justice. Without justice for all, the U.S. will not be able to address climate change, a crisis that disproportionately impacts people of color. To move forward as an organization, Climate First! will actively educate itself on the intersection of these issues, seek more diversity in its supporters and volunteers, and fully support organizations working for racial justice.

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.
