Policy Mapping of U.S. Congressional Action on Climate Change
To identify progress and gaps in U.S. congressional action on climate change since 2017.
The current presidential administration has rolled back key environmental protections and withdrawn the U.S. from the Paris Climate Accords. Meanwhile, the climate crisis is here, with socially unequal and unjust consequences for groups of people whom social workers serve. This policy mapping project systematically examines U.S. Congressional action on climate change since 2017 to identify progress, trends, and gaps in federal legislative action on climate in ways that explicitly aim to address and protect vulnerable or minoritized groups of people.
