What is the 100% Campaign?
The 100% Campaign is bringing Minnesotans together who believe we need an equitable clean energy future for everyone in our state. With both organizational partners and individual endorsees, the 100% Campaign is grounded in the idea that “to change everything, we need everyone”. We are organizing a cross-sector, statewide, multi-racial, intersectional campaign to build an equitable clean energy economy that works for everyone in Minnesota. You can read more about us at www.100percentmn.org.
We believe that Minnesotans must act now to ensure our well-being for generations to come. To do that, we must:
Transition to safe, clean, locally-made energy solutions at scale and as quickly as we can
Create solutions that work for all Minnesotans across race, gender, class, and place
Encourage public & private investments, expand worker training, and create sustainable, high-paying jobs
Strengthen communities impacted by pollution, climate change, and our transition from fossil fuels.
Our future belongs to us, but it won’t happen without action that is urgent, intentional, and inclusive. We are committed to:
Tell our own stories and talk with our own people about equitable clean energy solutions at scale
Listen to each other about what we need from a transition to a 100% equitable and clean energy future
Act from our values and speak from our own point of view
Advocate for equitable clean energy solutions at scale
So, what does that mean for you? Here are the some of the ways you can help build the movement for 100% clean energy in Minnesota:
1. Share your story on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram about how you experience climate change.
This can be a written post, a selfie with a short written portion, or a video!
Some of the key questions we’re asking folks to reflect on are:
How have you experienced climate change in your own life?
How do you feel about climate change?
How can you build power to create change?
Who would we be as Minnesotans if we did that, together?
Use the hashtags #100percentMN and #mnleg.
