We know we can’t wait to tackle some of society’s greatest crises, such as climate change or increasing plastic pollution in the ocean. With today's political climate, it’s going to take hundreds, thousands, even millions of people making their voices heard to make progress. It will take people power, and this summer we’re furthering the strategies we’ve used for 40 years to safely go out into communities and create the change we need. Learn more about the Fund.
