Recently, two of our Moms were interviewed by Good Morning America for their series on the impacts of climate change on families.
Jennifer Cantley, a state coordinator for Moms Clean Air Force, lives with her three boys in Nevada, where they’re experiencing drought, wildfires, and extreme heat made worse by climate change.
Wildfires are especially hard for Jennifer and her boys, who have asthma. They make the air dangerous to breathe—especially for those with lung and heart issues. Watch her powerful interview on Good Morning America now.
Elizabeth Bechard, Senior Policy Analyst for Moms Clean Air Force, lives with her husband and six-year-old twins in Vermont. She spoke with GMA3’s Ginger Zee about what parents can do to cope with climate anxiety and how collective action is one of the most important things we can do for our kids and the climate. “We love our kids. And taking climate action in any form—thinking about it as a way of expressing your love for your kids can help you stay connected to that sense of why this matters so much.” Watch this inspirational interview on Good Morning America now.
Jennifer and Elizabeth showed their courage in raising their voices and telling their own stories about how climate change impacts their families. We hope you will take the time to watch these powerful interviews today.
