“Ethical Markets and our fellow members at WE ARE STILL IN rejoice today at the Inauguration of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris! Don’t miss this Call with Gina McCarthy!
~Hazel Henderson, Editor and CEO”
Today, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris were sworn in as President and Vice-President of the United States, beginning a new chapter for the United States in our effort to combat the climate crisis.
President Biden is expected to sign an executive order to initiate the process of re-entering the United States into the Paris Agreement around 6pm today. The U.S. will officially be part of the Agreement again 30 days later, on February 19th (backgrounder on the process here). This is an important moment to mark by both applauding the President’s actions and expressing the commitment of our organizations to work with his administration on accelerated climate action and a clean recovery. President Biden is expected to sign an additional executive order today that will direct federal agencies to review over 100 of the Trump administration’s rollbacks on environmental protections.
We’d love your help this evening and tomorrow, in applauding the administration’s move to rejoin the Paris Agreement, and using this opportunity to re-elevate the America Is All In declaration with the help of this social toolkit. We will be joining the conversation on Twitter @wearestillin – consider retweeting us!
“We face a climate in crisis… Are we going to step up? All of us? It’s time for boldness, for there is so much to do… We will be judged, you and I, by how we resolve these cascading crises of our era.” – President Joe Biden

Guest speaker: Gina McCarthy
National Climate Advisor
White House Office of Domestic Climate Policy
Please join us for an introduction call for All In signatories with White House National Climate Advisor Gina McCarthy and members of our Leaders Circle on the outlook for climate action in 2021. We’ll discuss how the federal government is making climate core to its agenda and map out the role that U.S. subnational and non-federal actors can play at the local and state level, the partnership opportunities that exist at the federal level, and the continued importance of engaging internationally to deliver ambitious advocacy and action to address the climate crisis. We’ll also go over key climate moments in the upcoming year (there are quite a few!).
Thank you! We’re looking forward to this next chapter of unified climate action with you all!
