I've cared about the Earth and it's future since I was a little kid - way back to third grade, when I found out my favorite species was endangered. I kept that interest into adulthood. While it was harder to keep it up when I became a mom, it became more urgent than ever. I was always concerned about future generations, but now my kids were counting on me personally. I act to fight climate change and protect our water and air for my kids and all kids around the world. Closing my eyes, I can imagine the fear of a mother running with her child from a wildfire or seeing rising waters in a hurricane or suffering in a heatwave without air conditioning. No one should have to face that fear, especially not that caused and worsened by humans.
