The 2020 election demonstrated clearly that the climate and environmental justice crises are crucial to voters’ choices at the ballot box and to voter turnout. The climate crisis’ harms to American communities have escalated rapidly since then, and an increasing number of voters—50% of all voters, 75% of Democrats—identify climate change as a “critical threat.” It is apparent that climate and environmental justice will be crucial, intersectional issues in 2022 and beyond. Less apparent but still true is that they are win-win issues for Democrats in every part of the country. Join us as we discuss how Democrats can run on climate and win in 2022 and beyond.
