Eyewitness: Take Action

Your story is important —most politicians underestimate their constituents’ support for climate change action – and your voice can help them understand why the majority of Minnesotans want more government leadership to address the climate crisis.   

Join in with other Minnesota  voices across the state sharing why action and leadership on equitable climate solutions is necessary. We’re hand-delivering copies of the EYEWITNESS book, alongside your letters, to every legislator in 2021.

Submit your testimony letter now through our easy fill-in-the-blank template!

Or create your own letter, poem, or piece of art. Haven’t reached out to your elected officials before? We know it can be nerve-wracking, but we’re with you. You are the expert in your own climate change experience, and your voice can make an impact alongside the collective of Minnesotans just like you, calling for change. 

Invite your friends, families, and neighbors into action with you to share how climate change is impacting your community and how you want to shape your future.
