"Nearly half a million grassroots activists pushed their DNC members to support a full-fledged climate debate between the candidates. It's proof of their grassroots power that the resolutions committee advanced something we believe will encourage more direct debate on the climate crisis by allowing multi-candidate forums with simultaneous 'discussion' between candidates.

"We will keep the pressure up on the DNC to pass these resolutions on Saturday. The climate crisis is too important to both our future and our ability to mobilize the voters we need to beat Donald Trump -- the DNC must use this opportunity to showcase the clear contrast between the Democratic candidates and Donald Trump on the climate crisis, whose only answer to this emergency is to deny that it is even happening.

Signers of this statement include: CREDO Action, Sunrise Movement, Bold Alliance, NextGen America, Chesapeake Climate Action Network, Greenpeace USA, Climate Hawks Vote, 350.org, Friends of the Earth Action, and Washington State Democrats.

The grassroots climate debate coalition collected over 489,000 petition signatures calling for an official climate debate, which were delivered to the DNC's headquarters in June. Since then, our grassroots members have made thousands of phone calls to DNC members, urging them to support this resolution. In addition, over 40 Democratic parties at the state and county level, in states ranging from Arizona to California to Tennessee to Utah, have passed resolutions urging DNC members in their states to back the call for a climate debate.
