Fire Drill Friday: How to Push Joe Biden to be a Climate Champion | Greenpeace USA



This week on Fire Drill Fridays, we’ll be discussing how to ensure President-elect Joe Biden harnesses the power of his office to be a true climate champion.

What we knew as ‘normal’ was a crisis. Going back is not an option. Now, like never before, the opportunity to move beyond fossil fuel racism to a just, equitable future is in front of us, and the next president must take it on. Join Jane Fonda, Kassie Siegel of the Center for Biological Diversity, and Annie Leonard and Charlie Jiang of Greenpeace USA for an exciting conversation discussing how we can make the next administration embrace the presidential leadership needed to be a true champion for the climate and the people.

Tune in right here at 2pm ET / 11am PT!
