The U.S. Congress is pivotal to national and global efforts to meet the challenge of climate disruption. However, for Congress to be part of the solution, leadership is needed from members of both political parties. FCNL believes that our moral obligation to address climate change and protect vulnerable communities transcends partisanship. By changing the dialogue in Congress on climate change, we are paving the way for meaningful legislative solutions to gain bipartisan support and become law.

Background The President's Budget Creates a More Dangerous World 

In order to increase Pentagon spending and fund massive tax cuts for the wealthiest people in our country, the budget that President Trump proposes for fiscal year 2018 decimates programs that prevent violence, ensure clean air and water, and protect the health and well-being of millions.

Action Alert Tell Congress: Reject this Unconscionable Budget
