Climate Change and Clean Energy

Climate change is impacting us. And it’s not good. Pollution from power plants and other sources is affecting our food, our air, and our water. It’s super-sizing things like hurricanes and droughts. If we don’t take action, it’s only going to get worse.

As I look back on 2019, there are plenty of times that it would have been easy to get frustrated, throw my hands up, and lose hope. But I didn't -- and Clean Water members and supporters had a lot to do with that.

Recently, Clean Water Fund held its annual auction events in Pittsburgh and Philadelphia. The Pittsburgh auction celebrated its 10th anniversary, while the Philadelphia event has been going strong for a whopping 22 years.

The events generate financial support for our local campaigns that seek to improve democracy, develop strong grassroots leadership, and bring together diverse communities to work cooperatively for environmental progress.
