Act Now to Save Climate Action by Oakland County


Tomorrow night Oakland County Commissioners will decide whether to take a stand on climate change. If passed, proposals to be voted on at tomorrow night’s meeting will:


• Fund a high-ranking Sustainability Officer to lead county climate efforts and

• Create a Climate Action Plan for County operations.

These proposals are the beginning of serious climate action by our county. There is an organized effort to stop them.


We have heard that some commissioners are receiving calls from citizens who are against these measures. We expect there might be opposition during public comment. The commissioners have told us they need to hear from us. PLEASE make your voice heard.

Please contact your Commissioner today or tomorrow—BEFORE the vote which will take place on Thursday night—to tell them you SUPPORT these two steps to Turning Oakland County Green.

We had over 50 people sign the Thank You letter to Oakland County. Thank you if you did, but if you can find a moment to do more, please do this:
