The People's Climate Action Plan

Climate change is upon us already — more frequent extreme weather events, worsening air quality, rising sea levels, more severe droughts more often, more intense heat waves — and it will only get worse unless we reduce our carbon emissions across all sectors of our economy. Everyone will be affected by climate change. The question is, who can afford to recover and which communities will be left behind? The good news is that we can address carbon emissions head-on in a just and equitable way as we transition to a clean energy economy. The Green New Deal for Birmingham campaign, led by GASP, aims to develop a people-driven, justice-first climate action plan for the City of Birmingham that can be replicated in other municipalities across Alabama and the U.S.
