WINNING TOGETHER We are millions of people taking action for progressive change

CREDO Action Campaign Manager Brandy Doyle released the statement below in response to reports that the Democratic National Committee has decided not to host a primary debate focused on climate change:

“Tom Perez doesn’t seem to care much about the climate crisis, but many of the Democratic candidates and a vast majority of Democratic primary voters do. This move is a slap in the face to the hundreds of thousands of activists and all of the candidates calling on the DNC to hold a dedicated climate debate.

It is not lost on us that this announcement was made on the very same day that Perez met with survivors of Hurricane Michael in Bay County, Florida, where my family was forced to evacuate. Those of us already affected by climate change today deserve more than sound bites – we need to hear solutions.

It isn’t too late for Tom Perez and other leaders at the DNC to come to their senses and allow the Democratic candidates to make their case to voters that they are best equipped to tackle climate change. They’ll find out soon enough that it is going to take a lot more than a quiet phone call to one campaign to silence the growing demands for a climate debate.”

In April, CREDO organized a multi-organization petition with more than a dozen environmental and progressive groups calling on the DNC to host a climate debate. The petition, which has more than 171,000 signatures, can be found here.

CREDO Action, part of CREDO Mobile, is a social change network of over five million activists, sending tens of millions of petition signatures and hundreds of thousands of phone calls to decision-makers each year. CREDO Action members also participate in meetings, protests and other direct action for progressive change.
