What is the ACE framework?

After two inspiring webinars, four rich dialog sessions, and a robust strategic and community review process, a coalition of partners developed an ACE National Strategic Planning Framework for the United States. Dozens of people representing diverse backgrounds, organizations, and geographies participated in helping shape the Framework. The Framework supported a national U.S. Action for Climate Empowerment (ACE) plan to prepare the United States to rejoin the Paris Climate Accord. 

You can read the ACE Framework here and also sign up as an organization that would support the key recommendations, including:

For Rejoining the Paris Agreement
