The People's Demands for Climate Justice is a great plan created by people around the world whose communities are impacted by climate change and it gives common sense solutions that we need from world leaders to curb the climate crisis. We must force world leaders to listen, and the People's Demands for Climate Justice is a way to get their attention. Please sign today and spread the word to your friends and family.

Thank you for working for the climate.

TELL THE NEW CONGRESS TO FIGHT CLIMATE DENIAL

We will have several new House of Representatives leaders take positions in January. We need to strongly urge them to be climate leaders in that body and we need to start now.

The fires in California are a prime example of climate change. The fires are devastating and many communities in California have the most hazardous air in the world as of mid-November, 2018. It simply isn't going to get any better unless we can address the issue of climate with the deniers. Our newly elected House members, along with those already in the House, need to be contacted immediately and urged to bring climate to the floor of the House. After the climate discussions, they need to commit to climate actions. We must expect climate leadership from the new House Majority.

Will you commit to contacting your Representatives? SISTERS ONLINE is committed to this action and we hope you are too.

Thanks for getting involved.

 

TOKYO 2020 OLYMPICS--DON'T DESTROY THE RAINFOREST

The 2020 summer Olympics will be in Tokyo, Japan. The International Olympic Committee has said it will be one of the greenest Olympic games in history, but CREDO Action has learned that the Olympic authorities have recently admitted that they are using rainforest wood in the construction of Olympics venues, EG: the New National Stadium. Eighty-seven percent of the plywood panels used in that stadium will be from the rainforests in Indonesia and Malaysia. The International Olympic Committee needs to hear that we don't want them to harm rainforests for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. Will you take action?

Contact the International Olympic Committee by signing this petition.

Half of the plywood that Japan imports is from the Malaysian state of Sarawak on the island of Borneo. Sarawak has one of the highest rates of deforestation in the world, and indigenous communities in Sarawak have been fighting logging for years. Let's help them out by signing the petition from CREDO.

Let's let the International Olympic Committee know that the world is watching while the 2020 venues are being built.

Thanks for getting involved. Please tell others about this request and ask them to sign the petition as well.
