"The Green Team will act in an advisory capacity to: help develop policies, assist with identifying grant opportunities, implement programs, and assist with educational opportunities for staff and community leaders."
"The Chesapeake Climate Action Network (CCAN) is the first grassroots, nonprofit organization dedicated exclusively to fighting global warming in Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, D.C. Our mission is to build and mobilize a powerful grassroots movement in this unique region that surrounds our nation’s capital to call for state, national and international policies that will put us on a path to climate stability."
"We help our Lower Easter Shore of Maryland by doing community work. We are made up of elected officials, organizations, volunteers, and others." Examples of this work includes hosting events that are offering a one-stop-shop for resources like vaccine clinics, free masks and sanitizers, mediation services, substance abuse help, SNAP, rental assistance, library sign ups, translation help, and more.
"Extinction Rebellion is a decentralized, international and politically non-partisan movement using non-violent direct action and civil disobedience to persuade governments to act justly on the Climate and Ecological Emergency."
"Red Emma's is the worker cooperative behind the restaurant, bookstore, and community events space at 1225 Cathedral St., dedicated to putting principles of solidarity and sustainability into practice in a democratic workplace."
"Being a worker-run collective is the foundation of our politics, but it’s not the whole story. Here’s some of the other commitments we put into practice on a daily basis:
Sustainability: as far as is possible, we try to minimize waste, and maximize recycling and reuse.
Animal friendly: we are a 100% vegetarian cafe, and focus extensively on our vegan menu.
Safe space: there’s no room for racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic, or ableist behavior in our space.
Support for the independent publishing ecosystem: as much as possible, we support noncorporate presses and distributors that share our values."
"The Sunrise Movement is a youth movement to stop climate change and create millions of good jobs in the process. We’re building an army of young people to make climate change an urgent priority across America, end the corrupting influence of fossil fuel executives on our politics, and elect leaders who stand up for the health and wellbeing of all people."
"Network members are working to combat climate and environmental injustice, stop dirty energy projects, divest from fossil fuels, fix democracy, and build the just, clean-energy powered future young people need. We understand that these issues are deeply interlinked, and we believe that we can better tackle them as a coordinated network."
"NextGen America fights for progressive change by growing and wielding the grassroots power of young people in elections. With the efforts of thousands of volunteers to make calls and send texts, we mobilized the youth vote to elect Joe Biden as our president and take back the Senate. But there is still more to do, and we are excited to have you join us.
In 2021, we will train and mobilize our network of NextGen activists to advocate to our members of Congress and other elected officials for progressive change that affects the lives of young voters."
"Funded by supporters like you, we research the challenges confronting our environment and advocate for solutions. Through research reports, news conferences, interviews with reporters, op-ed pieces, letters to the editor and more, we educate the public about what’s at stake and what can be done. Our canvassers and organizers meet people where they are—in public places,door to door or online—raising awareness, recruiting new supporters and activists, and securing funds to support our work.
We make the case for our environment and help people like you make an impact—through petitions, emails, letters, phone calls and more, all delivered to the right people, just when it matters most."
Leading bipartisan initiatives that drive technological innovation and energy efficiency across all sectors of the economy, through policy advocacy, education, communications, and research.

"Our mission is to conserve the lands and waters on which all life depends. To achieve this, we must boldly address the biodiversity and climate crises over the next decade. By maximizing our ability to affect change between now and 2030, we can shape a brighter future for people and our planet."
