EOPA

This summer, we will launch our nation-wide bus tour to demand a Federal Climate Emergency Plan to address the escalating climate crisis. Led by veterans who are lawmakers, we will educate, train, and organize officials, media, and the public in 32 cities across the country.

Through visual, value-based storytelling, EOPA investigates the dangers and of climate impacts on global water security as well as solutions open to communities and countries across the globe. We have completed two short documentaries with more in production. Learn more.

EOPA is led by veteran lawmakers who are committed to continuing to protect our nation from the dangers of water insecurity and climate change. After years of dedicated service abroad, veterans know first hand the dangers associated with climate change and are working across the aisle to create lasting solutions. One project we tackled with them was make to Congress reauthorize the Land and Water Conservation Fund this year, preserving our public lands.

Our efforts began in New York State, where we organized over a thousand elected officials to demand that Governor Coumo ban fracking. Since that ban was established in 2014, we have worked with elected across the State on fossil fuel divestment and funding for renewables.

Starting in 2017, we worked to coalesce elected officials around Brown’s Last Chance, a campaign to have the then-Governor put an end date on fossil fuel extraction in CA. Today we continue that work through a statewide network of hundreds of elected officials protecting people and planet.

In Maine, we work with public officials to document the impacts on water supply already happening as the climate warms. This was the subject of one of our Code Blue mini-documentaries, a series which will be continuing throughout coming months.

Arizona is in the crosshairs of foreign nationals aiming to buy out America’s drinking water. In one of our videos, we expose Saudi Arabia for grabbing US water rights and land to grow cattle feed, despite an 18-year drought throughout this region of the Southwest.
