To ensure that the climate crisis is a top priority for our elected officials, it’s crucial that they regularly hear from constituents from across Minnesota. One way MN350 makes that happen is through the Climate Majority Project (CMP), a collection of more than 1,000 climate activists throughout our state who have committed to taking biweekly actions from home.
Past actions have included encouraging politicians to support climate change solutions like 100% clean energy legislation, submitting public comments to the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency in support of electric school buses, and thanking Gov. Tim Walz for his support of clean car standards. This past year, members of the state legislature reported hearing from more constituents about the climate crisis and clean energy than ever before.
In 2017, The Climate Majority Project was barely more than 100 people. But thanks to volunteer leadership, improved organization, and targeted outreach, this number has grown to over 1,000. Going forward, our Policy Action Team aims to increase active membership, especially in politically strategic areas of the state, such as St. Cloud, Rochester, Stillwater, Burnsville, Savage, Grand Rapids, Hinckley, Mora, Chaska, and Waconia.
