Tomorrow: Can I deliver your signature in person to the United Nations Secretary-General?

I am delivering this petition tomorrow to the United Nations Secretary-General: "We, the undersigned people of the United States of America, commit to mitigating climate change and sign on to the Paris Climate Agreement."

Hi Eddie—Tomorrow, I'm delivering my petition to the United Nations Secretary-General. I want to make it clear to the world community that we, the American people, reject Donald Trump's decision to withdraw from the Paris Climate Agreement. And that we stand committed to mitigating climate change. 

We have more than 460,000 signatures. Will you add your name and help me reach 500,000 signatures? 

Click here to add your name to the petition, and then share it with your friends.

I'll be delivering the petition on behalf of MoveOn members, along with other allies who believe we should fight climate change. For more details on this campaign, see my email from the other day, below.

Dear MoveOn member,

Donald Trump just announced that he will withdraw the United States from the Paris Climate Agreement—a landmark accord signed by 195 countries to mitigate climate change. In doing so, Trump has hurtled the world further toward climate and economic catastrophes, while simultaneously rupturing international alliances.1

Will you sign and share my petition to Congress and Donald Trump telling them that despite Trump's foolish decision to withdraw from the Paris Climate Agreement, we, the American people, stand committed to mitigating climate change?

We, the undersigned people of the United States of America, commit to mitigating climate change and sign on to the Paris Climate Agreement.

This petition is an expression to one another and to the world that we, the people of the United States, remain committed to mitigating climate change.

Click here to add your name to this petition, and then pass it along to your friends.

A note from the MoveOn team: This is one of thousands of petitions launched by individual MoveOn members and partner organizations in opposition to the Trump administration's dangerous agenda. Petitions like this one are useful building blocks of our broader resistance organizing efforts. They are delivered to decision-makers, highlighted to media outlets, and circulated online to raise awareness and grow our progressive community. You can start your own petition here.

Want to support our work? The MoveOn community will work every moment, day by day and year by year, to resist Trump's agenda, contain the damage, defeat hate with love, and begin the process of swinging the nation's pendulum back toward sanity, decency, and the kind of future that we must never give up on. And to do it we need your ongoing support, now more than ever. Will you stand with us?
