– Divest & Defund, which pressures large financial institutions to stop financing fossil fuel companies;
– Community Climate Solutions, which works with local governments across Dane County to achieve climate goals; and
– Climate Justice, which works to raise awareness of the impacts of climate change on frontline communities and to develop fair and equitable solutions to the climate crisis.
