Take Action

Speak up to protect our water!

Last summer was an urgent wake-up call to Floridians across the state who watched in horror as toxic blue-green algae choked our waterways and killed our wildlife. No one who saw (or smelled) this disaster will ever forget the images of thick, noxious "guacamole" waters lapping up on our shores.

For many of us, it was the final straw. We need action for our water, and we need it now. And that action starts with you. The Department of Environmental Protection’s new Blue-Green Algae Task Force is taking public comment from now until July 15 to find solutions to this devastating problem. We need your voice. We are encouraging all Floridians to submit a comment and to tell officials that this problem requires a long-term commitment to conservation, not quick-fix band-aids.

Investing in land conservation - especially those lands that have significant value to the aquifer and our waterways - is one of the best and most cost-effective ways to protect our water, our health, and our tourism-driven economy.

Take a moment right now to send an email to the members of the Blue-Green Algae Task Force and tell them that you support land conservation.

Clean energy helps protect Florida’s families by reducing harmful emissions from the electric and transportation sectors while simultaneously driving economic growth and creating good paying jobs. There is no debate that Florida will experience a higher frequency of extreme events related to climate change including more intense hurricanes, inland flooding, heat-related health threats, and toxic algae blooms.

Governor Ron DeSantis can address these challenges in a meaningful way and grow jobs by prioritizing and removing barriers to clean energy investments and by making clean, renewable energy more accessible and affordable for all Floridians.

Tell Governor DeSantis to use VW's settlement funds for electric school buses!

Volkswagen was caught cheating federal emissions tests, and are now paying a $14.7 billion settlement. We’re demanding Governor DeSantis to use the tens of millions of dollars our state is receiving from the VW settlement to upgrade our aging fleet of toxic diesel school buses to zero-emissions electric buses. This will clean the air in our communities, bolster the fight against climate change, and protect the lungs of the millions of kids who ride buses every day.

Tell Governor DeSantis: Use the VW settlement money to switch from dirty diesel school buses to zero-emissions electric school buses!
