The CFHS campaign vision is to support a healthier ecosystem for Texas students, educators, and the communities in which they live as well as a robust and equitable economy that includes access and training for careers in family-sustaining occupations that mitigate the harmful effects of climate change. The campaign seeks to work with school districts in their efforts to decarbonize schools, lower utility bills, and create healthier environments for all.

We will discuss opportunities for organizing and collaboration in support of these efforts ahead of the official campaign launch, planned for Houston in March.

The Texas Climate Jobs Project is a project of Fair Shot Texas and Fair Shot Action Fund in partnership with the Texas AFL-CIO. Our climate is breaking down, and it hurts every working person. Through the Texas Climate Jobs Project, labor unions are helping lead on climate change. The TCJP plan works to solve the climate crisis and to create jobs that benefit workers and their communities.
