For Our Grandchildren, Future Generations & All Life
Welcome to the home of thousands of elder climate activists, all committed to a non-partisan effort to end the Climate Crisis and build a just and sustainable future for our children, our grandchildren, and all children. Some of us are new to climate activism and some have been working for years, but each of us has faced a personal reckoning and decided that there is no better use of our wisdom and strength, our time and resources, and our anger and good will, than to join in this struggle. We believe that collective action is the most effective way to force policy changes on the scale and timetable that will be necessary to protect all of us. And we mean all of us, in all our colors, genders, abilities, origins and political persuasions, poor and rich, young and old and, most importantly, our most vulnerable. Climate change, the COVID-19 pandemic, structural racism and injustice all are ugly products of a system that values profit and property over life, and we are working for an equitable reconstruction of all of it.
