April was another amazing month for SustainUS. We supported the Democracy Spring protests in DC, lobbied the State Department, challenged the World Bank on continued funding of fossil fuels projects, launched our COP22 creative challenge, and received a $20,000 leadership development grant from the V. Kann Rasmussen Foundation.
Now, we’re gearing up to join #BreakFree actions – bold mobilizations across the globe to stop fossil fuel projects – and are planning an extended strategy retreat in Vermont.
If you want to get more engaged in SustainUS, become an active member! The easiest way to plug-in and hear about what is happening across the organization’s teams is to join our SustainUS Community Call on Tuesday May 3 at 9:00 pm ET.
