Who's A Leader?


We asked America: Who's a leader?  On November 3rd, the answer became clear: the real leaders on climate change are the citizens across the country willing to take action i­n their communities.

Together, we issued over 14,000 invitations to our politicians, asking them to show us their plan on global warming. 

Check out the list below to see­ who participated on November 3rd.  If you have additions or corrections for this list, please e-mail us at organizers@stepitup2007.org
