First ever National BRRRR-tual Polar Bear Plunge for the climate
Plunge from home with Bill McKibben, Rev. Lennox Yearwood and Congressman McEachin to "Keep Winter Cold"
THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO PARTICIPATED
On February 13th hundreds of climate activists across the country came together to take the plunge for our climate. We sent a clear message to our leaders that climate change must be a priority in 2021.
This was our most successful Polar Bear Plunge yet! We managed to pivot our plunge online and it certainly paid off through not only the funds raised, but also the amazing videos shared by plungers. The CCAN team would like to thank all of our plungers, teams, donors, sponsors, and speakers who took part in the first ever national and virtual Polar Bear Plunge to "Keep Winter Cold."
2021: THE MOST IMPORTANT YEAR FOR OUR CLIMATE
In 2020 we have witnessed more than 4 million acres burn across California and a record breaking hurricane season. Unless our leaders follow the science to enact strong climate policy and hold polluters accountable, decades from now we may recall 2020 as a "good" year. We cannot let that happen. That's why we're asking you to #TakeThePlunge with us for the climate.
WHY TAKE THE PLUNGE
By taking the plunge, you raised vital funds for the work of the Chesapeake Climate Action Network (CCAN) to pass climate policies in our region and nationwide. You also sent a clear message to our leaders on Capitol Hill to not wait any longer on climate, and to hold climate polluters accountable. Now is not the time for them to get cold feet, now is the time for them to keep their promises on climate.
