OFA's 13 favorite #ActOnClimate organizing moments of 2013

Climate change is real, dangerous, and man-made—and 97% of scientists agree. In 2013, OFA volunteers delivered unicorn statues, called out climate deniers, and helped educate their communities in order to change the debate on climate change. Take a look at our 13 favorite climate organizing moments of the year.

1. Scientists agreed. #ScienceSaysSo.

2. OFA called Speaker Boehner out for being a climate denier.

3. OFA New Hampshire delivered a Climate Denier Award to Senator Kelly Ayotte—in the form of a unicorn.

And in Indiana, Rep. Todd Young accepted his Climate Denier Award from OFA volunteers.

All together, OFA volunteers hand-delivered more than 100 awards to members of Congress.

4. Senator Sheldon Whitehouse delivered his 50th floor speech on climate change, calling on his colleagues to act on climate.
