Take Action: 
Send a message to your senators asking them to support the International Climate Accountability Act.

Advocate:  
Urge your Senators to support the International Climate Accountability Act (S.1743), a bipartisan bill co-sponsored by 46 Senators. As Catholics heeding Pope Francis’ call for governments to take “drastic measures” to combat the “climate emergency,” we must ensure that the United States join in national and global actions to address the climate crisis.  Please call upon our Senators to support S.1743.
