4) Organize your community for 100% clean energy. Local action on climate change is an important way to make progress towards 100% clean energy and build momentum for this action at the state and federal levels. Many cities around the country and in Michigan are committing to 100% clean energy goals, and it often just takes a handful of committed citizens. See our toolkit for local action. Start organizing your community today!
