This week’s Monday Action, brought to you a day early for Mothers Day from Pioneer Valley, MA Mothers Out Front: Ask Ivanka to tell her father that All We Want For Mothers Day is the Paris Agreement.
Two years ago we began Monday Actions as a weekly countdown to the Paris Climate talks. Then we celebrated what seemed to be international progress against the threat of climate change after Paris. Now, with a new administration in Washington D.C. we are in danger of pulling out of this critically important agreement.
If the world’s leaders fulfill the commitments made in Paris, our children have a chance at a healthy livable climate tomorrow.
Today, on Mothers Day and all week, we are writing, posting and Tweeting to Ivanka Trump urging her to advise the President to stay the course on the Paris Climate Agreement. Feel free to use the sample letter below or edit it in your own voice!
Dear Ivanka Trump:
As a fellow mother I think that you will understand why I am urgently concerned about climate change. Our children depend on us to do whatever we can to fight for a livable future for them.
The U.S. must remain a strong member of the Paris Climate Agreement in order for other countries to follow and reduce the use of fossil fuels and their emissions. For our children’s sake, we must remain true to the agreement that was made in 2015.
So much depends on U.S. leadership on this critical issue. If we invest in clean, renewable energy we’ll combat climate change and our economy will thrive.
Now is the time to strengthen these agreements so that all children can have a healthy environment today and a livable climate tomorrow.
Thank you for caring and speaking for the children of the world. Be their hero and their hope.
