As engineers, scientists, health providers, and other professionals, we understand, and often see first hand in our work, the devastating effects of climate change. As union members, we know how important it is to make sure that working people and labor have a voice in the transition to clean, renewable energy. Join us to RISE for Climate, Jobs, and Justice.

We demand Real Climate Leadership, which requires:
- Environmental, racial, and economic justice for all
- No new fossil fuel development and a managed decline of existing fossil fuel production
- A just transition to 100% renewable energy that protects workers, Indigenous peoples and frontline communities — both in these extractive industries and more broadly — and ensures family-sustaining jobs with the right to unionize, that are safe for people and the planet
- Just and equitable resiliency and recovery efforts led by the communities most impacted
