The Reform Movement is committed to protecting the environment. From the pressing global crisis of climate change to advocacy on clean water and food justice, we are heirs to a tradition of stewardship and partnership in the ongoing work of Creation that goes back to Genesis.

Take Action: Oppose the Repeal of the Clean Power Plan

The Clean Power Plan was expected to save thousands of lives each year and make a significant dent in our carbon emissions by regulating carbon emissions from power plants. Now the EPA is planning on rescinding the rule, in a move that would threaten public health and remove a program that was a key component of our Paris Agreement pledge.

Take Action: Protect Sacred and Public Lands

Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke has recommended President Trump shrink and roll back protections on public lands, including lands sacred to American Indians. Urge President Trump to protect our public lands and keep these scared areas pristine.

Take Action: Protect the Arctic

Urge your members of Congress to support legislation that would designate the coastal plain of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge as a Wilderness area, ensuring protections for this unique and delicate ecosystem.
