Clash For Climate Resources (Know Your Climate Rights)

Know Your (Climate) Rights

As we "Clash For Climate" this International Clash Day, we want people to know not just what the problems are but to be knowledgable about how we can do our part.

Beyond just making changes in our own lives, there are organizations, activists, and climate advocates working right now toward solutions to put our planet back on track. In the sections below, you'll find the organizations and activists who need your support.

However, one of the strongest actions we all can take is voicing our opinion with our vote. If climate change is a key issue for you in the upcoming 2020 election, find out where different candidates stand on the issues and how they align with your values. 

Most imporantly, make sure you are registered to vote. Different states have different deadlines to in which you must register by in order to vote in 2020. But don't delayregister to vote today.
