Write Here! Write Now! Green Climate Fund

Join Unitarian Universalist for Social Justice in their Write Here! Write Now! letter-writing campaign to support the Green Climate Fund (GCF).

GCF is a global platform established to respond to climate change by investing in low-emission and climate-resilient development. The fund also assists vulnerable societies in adapting to the unavoidable impacts of climate change. Climate-related extremes have affected productivity in agriculture, forestry, and fisheries. Droughts, floods, wildfires, and marine heatwaves have affected food security, nutrition, and the livelihoods of millions.

The war in Ukraine shows even more clearly that fossil fuels are a source of instability and conflict. Helping countries transition away from them and address the impacts of climate change is an investment in a safer and more secure world.

Urge your legislators to support the GCF through international climate funding.
