What: Thousands of Georgians are on the frontlines of the climate crisis, and are demanding that leaders take aim at the root of the issue by cutting emissions and turbocharging Georgia’s clean energy economy. Bold climate action will create thousands of new opportunities for workers across the state, advancing justice for all Georgians and boosting families and communities on the frontlines. People from all walks of life came together in the last election to make their voices heard–now, community leaders and climate advocates are building on that groundswell to protect Georgia’s climate and create family-sustaining jobs to mitigate the worst of the climate crisis. It’s time Georgia’s leaders go big, be bold, and put people to work.
