People across the country are launching local Fossil Free resolution campaigns. The first step to building a groundswell capable of demanding bold federal action on climate change is building people power in our communities.
A resolution is a statement of policy passed by local government – usually a legislative body like a city or town council, county commissioner or village board.
Resolutions are usually non-binding, but they are essential statements about what your local government stands for and plans to do.
If your community wants to go Fossil Free, local representatives are the first line of decision-makers who can make that happen. The best way to get them on board is through a fossil free resolution.
