Check out the work of the CAPA Climate Group’s friends and partners, including 350 Chicago, Citizens’ Greener Evanston, Save Our Illinois Land (SOIL), Rising Tide Chicago, and more!


CAPA works with local activists and its partners to petition lawmakers both at the local, state and national level to address smarter domestic policy regarding CO2 emissions, energy and other means of climate change.

Locally we are cosponsors for Solar for Faith Communities and encouraging places of faith to install solar panels.

In the State we support the Clean Energy Jobs Act that calls for a transition to 100% renewable energy by 2050. Read our full plan for Illinois.

Nationally we advocate for the Green New Deal, calling for an economic transformation that includes supporting and being in solidarity with social and environmental justice movements that are affected by a perpetual growth mentality of the fossil fuel industry.

“It is estimated by 2050 there will be between 200 million and 1 billion migrants due to the effects of climate change”

With the negative effects of climate change on political and economic stability around the world, it is imperative that countries and international bodies seek to both address and prepare for the future. The current administration, with the complicity of Congress, has placed climate change as a low priority. Meanwhile, almost every single country is pushing ahead to develop an economy geared towards the future where climate change is real. Without preparation we risk falling behind both neighbors, partners and competitors. This is why CAPA is taking action to convince lawmakers that climate change must be addressed head on.
