Open Letter to Candidates

We need our leaders to take action to achieve equitable and healthy climate solutions.

This open letter, for all candidates for elected office and their advisors, will build understanding that because climate change is a health emergency and is increasingly recognized as a health threat by the American public, candidates can address climate change while shielding themselves from partisan crossfire.

You can share this letter with candidates and/or their staff. It explains our perspective as health professionals: why we see climate change as a health emergency. If candidates can see climate change the way we see it, maybe they will give it the priority it deserves. The letter can be emailed directly to candidates or re-formatted into brief op-eds for a local media outlet. >>Download
