ROCK THE VOTE
We are not looking to the right or the left. We are looking forward. --Will Charouhis, founder, Forces of Nature
For Generation Z, many of our elected officials have been our representatives all of our lives, and the issue of climate change has existed since before we were born. We are out of time. The science has made clear the time for deliberation has past.
The founders of Forces of Nature aim to meet with any leaders who will give youth a voice. There is no aisle to reach across-we are all facing this crisis-Mother Nature does not have a side. We have met with former President Barack Obama, former Senator Charlie Christ, Senator Cory Booker, Former Congresswoman Gwen Graham, former Congressman Patrick Murphy, Former Mayor of Miami Beach Phillip Levine, former Congressman David Jolly, Senator Tom Cotton, Senator John Curtis, former Secretary of State John Kerry, former Mayor Micheal Bloomberg, Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi, former Vice President Al Gore, Mayor of Miami Beach Dan Gelber, Mayor of Miami-Dade County Daniella Cava, Mayor of Miami Francis Suarez, Mayor of New Orleans Latoya Cantrell, Congresswoman Castor, Congresswoman Salazar, Congressman Deutch-- all supporters of the youth-led climate movement, and the call to action against climate change.
But we are not stopping there. We aim to meet with every elected official who is willing to engage in conversation, both those who stand with us, and particularly those whose interests have historically stood in opposition to the change needed. America itself was founded on respecting different points of view. Only by talking with those who aren’t on board yet can we reclaim our democracy.
Elect leaders who will protect the health and well-being of all people.
