UNA-USA, Key Environmental Organizations, and 65,000 Americans Urge Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to keep U.S. in Paris Agreement

May 4, 2017
Washington, DC – On Thursday, May 4, the United Nations Association of the United States of America (UNA-USA) joined key environmental organizations in sending a letter, on behalf of 65,000 Americans, to U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, urging him to keep the U.S. in the Paris Agreement on climate change.

The letter notes that in adopting the Paris Agreement, nearly every nation on Earth has agreed to do its part to cut emissions and curb global climate change. The United States should not become the exception to this rule. Moreover, the administration should live up to our role in the Paris Agreement because it’s what U.S. citizens want: Americans support U.S. participation in the Paris Agreement by a margin of five to one.

Over the course of just two weeks, the signer organizations collectively gathered more than 65,000 signatures from Americans who support the U.S. fulfilling its commitment to the Paris Agreement.

The letter’s signers include representatives from UNA-USA, the United Nations Foundation, Sierra Club, Global Citizen, Earth Day Network, and ONE.
