“Climate change is the single biggest thing that humans have ever done on this planet. The one thing that needs to be bigger is our movement to stop it.”

Update – August, 2019

Success! Thanks to all of the hard work, input, and continuous pressure from the community, City Council placed conditions on GWP’s proposal for Glendale’s energy plans, and asked staff to push for more renewable power, transmission, and other ways to reduce the need for natural gas generation. Thank you to all who played a part! The final decision is still to come, and we will continue to work toward our goal of NO NEW GAS in Glendale. We’ll need your participation in the coming months. We hope you’ll keep working with us as we continue to push for sustainable policy for our city! 

Glendale youth come together at our July 9 rally in support of clean energy solutions for our city. No more investments in fossil fuel!

Working for a Sustainable Glendale!
“Adults keep saying: ‘We owe it to the young people to give them hope.’ But I don’t want your hope. I don’t want you to be hopeful. I want you to panic. I want you to feel the fear I feel every day. And then I want you to act. I want you to act as you would in a crisis. I want you to act as if our house is on fire. Because it is.” —Greta Thunberg
