Following Donald Trump’s historic mistake to withdraw the U.S. from the Paris Agreement, thousands of businesses, universities, and bipartisan government leaders from across the country stepped up to let the world know that we will continue to move away from fossil fuels in favor of affordable clean energy. Building upon Sierra Club’s Ready for 100 campaign, 135 mayors have already seized the moment by committing to 100% renewable energy, and the U.S. Conference of Mayors unanimously approved a bipartisan resolution to support a goal of 100% clean and renewable energy in cities nationwide by 2035.
Join us for a call with the resolution’s sponsor and co-chair of Mayors For 100% Clean Energy, Mayor Steve Benjamin of Columbia, South Carolina, to hear how he led his city to commit to 100% renewable energy and how he’s rallying mayors across the country to raise ambition and achieve the goals of the Paris Agreement at the municipal level, where powerful change is possible.
