MaryPIRG Student Climate Action Coalition
Fighting for accelerated climate action on college campuses statewide
Who We Are
MSCAC, a student led coalition, is leading the charge against fossil fuels on Maryland's college campuses. Through advocacy on campus and at the state level, we are working to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and push Maryland to be a leader in the fight against climate change.
What we're working on
At the state level, we are working on an initiative to increase legislative action around climate change, by working on the FUTURE act. Our state's public academic institutions are the perfect place to push the fight against climate change forward.
On campuses, we want to increase student understanding of environmental issues. This past year we have been learning about climate anxiety and environmental justice over Zoom, but we hope to spread awareness in person soon!
MSCAC also strives to educate people about climate change. Our members have been involved in cross-campus and school-specific educational events. By holding panels, teach-ins, and contributing to Earth Day events, we work to continue the conversation about global warming and drive change at the grassroots level.
Students have worked with Maryland legislators, campus faculty and staff, state climate action organizations, environmental justice experts, and our own communities to create this bill. We sincerely believe that, if passed, this bill will put our state on the path- with higher education leading the charge- to national leadership in climate action.
