Thank you Ash Kalra, San Jose's City Councilmember for District 2 and a candidate for California State Assembly, for becoming the first elected official in the United States to take the Pledge to Mobilize!
And great job to Northern California mobilizer Kat Baumgartner for reaching out to Councilmember Kalra to make this happen. We look forward to seeing him champion the WWII-scale climate mobilization we urgently need to restore a safe climate, and setting a standard of courage and leadership for other politicians to follow!
Thank you Climate Mobilization for your work in organizing people against climate change. I am honored to sign the pledge! @MobilizeClimate— Ash Kalra (@Ash_Kalra) July 31, 2015
To accelerate the American climate movement as quickly as we must, it's time for citizens and political leaders all over the country to fight for what's actually necessary to secure our future: an all-hands-on-deck national effort on the scale of the World War II home-front mobilization, to transform our country into a 100% clean energy economy within the next decade and lead the world in reaching net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2030.
Take the Pledge and spread it in your community, and let's build the power we need against climate chaos!
