Climate Jobs National Resource Center is united around a shared goal of combating climate change while reversing income inequality. The mission of the center is to advocate for a clean energy economy at the scale climate science demands, create good union jobs, and support more equitable communities. It works with unions across the U.S. to form their own state-based Climate Jobs coalitions to address the growing climate crisis and rising economic disparities by creating family-sustaining clean energy jobs. The center provides strategic and technical support to these state-led Climate Jobs coalitions. (Substrategy: U.S. National Policy)
