We're Cleaning Up the Dirty South
The Southeast is plagued by dirty energy. Dirty coal plants pollute our communities and climate, while utilities continue to force ratepayers to subsidize the building of proposed new dirty energy infrastructure. Our region's mega-utilities spend millions to buy our southern political leaders' votes to continue their polluting practices.
We’ve had enough.
Young people are taking action on our campuses, calling for millions of dollars of investment in clean energy. We’re joining with our communities to stop new dirty energy infrastructure. We are working for climate change solutions in the South.
Getting involved is simple:
- Host a House Party – Gather your friends to discuss how you are cleaning up the dirty south. Register your event and we’ll send you a house party kit.
- Stand with the Gulf – On April 20th, the 2nd Anniversary of the gulf oil disaster, “black-out” and call on our political leaders to stop subsidizing big oil and to halt offshore drilling. Register your black-out event on the map.
We’re stepping up our messaging, tactics, and people power in the South by uniting all of our work through the “Cleaning Up the Dirty South” platform. Through collective campus and community action we will show our political leaders that the youth climate movement is taking a stand. The platform creates a regional network of young people working for climate solutions through localized campus and community campaigns. By joining our local campaigns together through the regional platform we grow our strength through a unified voice of young people calling for a clean energy future.
