Climate Mama, founded by Harriet Shugarman, is a great example of this tenacity. Shugarman’s activism started when she first had children and realized that they would be the ones left with our planet – no matter what state we leave it in. She and her team emphasize education, encourage questions about the big issue of climate change, and even offer seals of approval for responsible products and services.
Shugarman is more than willing to turn her message into action. She was recently arrested for civil disobedience following a peaceful protest of the XL Keystone Pipeline. The government has released their official assessment of the proposed pipeline, but many are crying foul. President Obama is expected to make his decision regarding the pipeline by November 1.
Watch Shugarman’s appeal to Obama:
