Our issues

Friends of the Earth Action believes that climate change is happening now and politicians who equate moderation with action need to come around or be replaced. We believe that our tax and budget policies should create a framework that prioritizes future sustainability. And through it all, we  and our associated PAC work for laws and lawmakers who value environmental protection and poverty alleviation — who will ensure that our policies considers the ecological consequences for all on the planet.
