The voices of concerned citizens like you are what make our legislative and policy victories possible.
Check out current opportunities to make your voice heard by government officials and other decision-makers by signing a petition (or two!) below.
We’ll keep you updated on these fights and let you know other steps you can take.
Help Share the Sun!
Four out of five Connecticut residents can’t put solar panels on their roofs, because they rent or have a shady yard. With shared solar, anyone with an electric bill can purchase power from a larger solar array. But in Connecticut, shared solar has stalled. By signing this petition, you’ll be telling the governor and state legislature that you support solar power for everyone in Connecticut—to help people, the economy, and the planet.
Stand Up for a Life-filled Sound
Join the movement for clean, clear waters today: take the pledge to reduce nitrogen pollution in Long Island Sound. With policies changing at the national level, your voice matters more than ever. Save the Sound will keep you updated about action opportunities and how your voice will make a difference.
Become a Climate First Responder
Now that a climate denier and fossil fuel industry champion heads the EPA, threats to the climate are coming fast and furious—and it’s more important than ever before to stand up at the local, state, and national levels. Take the Climate First Responder Pledge and say “I pledge to fight for a healthy climate in my town and around the world.” We’ll keep you updated on the most urgent calls to action.
Save the Habitats and History of Plum Island
Plum Island, a 840-acre gem of bird and seal habitats, military history, and gorgeous landscapes in the eastern Sound, is at risk of being auctioned off to the highest bidder. They aren’t making islands like this anymore—tell your elected officials you want them to save, not sell, this precious place.
